Deceived by a Jay!

Just after dawn (when there was still a heavy mist over the garden) Linda and I heard the unmistakable call of a Buzzard circling overhead: this is a regular event these days! This was immediately replied to from the old oak tree in our neighbour's garden: a dialogue commenced!

As the mist unravelled, I was astonished to discover that the answering 'mews' were coming from a Jay! I wonder if this has been recorded previously?
