Jays




































































I have been photographing a family of Jays that have been visiting my garden this year. Unfortunately about 4 weeks ago I saw one dead in the next road to where I live and thought it may have been the male Jay that used to visit most days. I have since seen both adults with a young Jay in tow so it may have been another juvenile that perished. The bottom two images are of a juvenile Jay that still occasionally visits the garden and manages to avoid our elderly cat who looks quite surprised when it makes an appearance.
