Jays: Out of an amazing 19 bird-species visiting the garden today, this Jay turned up. Shy and staying mostly in woodland cover, this is the best time to see Jays, as they search more widely for food and leaf cover is reduced. They have been found to be as good at solving problems as the average 7 year-old, and each one buries thousands of acorns each year, remembering where to find them when food is scarce. The acorns they don’t retrieve are crucial for the spread of Oak trees. Conditions: Sunny and still. Temperature: Max 11- Min 6C.
