Everywhere I look up at the moment I see a Jay! Walking around Strumpshaw on Thursday I counted 30+ and there were even more at Upton Fen earlier in the week. Yesterday I had garden chores to do, and, despite these including lighting a large bonfire, juvenile and adult Jays were  continually visiting the garden to feed.

I'm aware of the annual debate about the origins of these birds (domestic or European) but has no-one reached any firm conclusions?
