O off I went a stalking the elusive woodland Jay....I staked out an eating spot and waited in the car...and waited...waited. He saw me no doubt as I never saw him once and as time ticked by I had to go. After picking up Angie on the return up the drive...there he was mopping up the stuff I had left behind .....he was gone in a flash of colours as I passed his dinner by. You have to laugh at this birding lark...its ups and downs but it was not really wasted as I photographed Pheasant, Coal Tit, Blue Tit , Great Tit, Robin and a first for me a Nuthatch.
Round one and two to the Jay.....but I will be back and hopefully lucky.
