Influx of Jays!

We frequently receive visits from Jays this time of year (as well as all the other familiar corvids) but today there were four Jays feeding simultaneously on peanuts. Interesting to watch how one bird extracted the nuts from the feeder and dropped them on the ground for the other three to pick up: real collaborative behaviour!

First excursion tonight: Linda, Sue, Peter and I are taking part in a fund-raising quiz night organised by the excellent Bure Valley Conservation Group. Since I'm still decidedly under par, I'll probably let the side down, but it'll be nice to escape from my bed for a couple of hours!
