A new bird species in the garden......................................................... number 29

I have had my first ever Jay in the garden this morning... it takes my "in the garden" count to 29.

Not bad for a tiny suburban garden.

Bizarrely my sister spotted her first one yesterday too, in Highgate Wood in London. She sent me a very simlar, but rather blurrier, photograph

Cheers!

Did it take any food? A great bird to get in the garden.

Pretty good for your little garden. I must do a ird species count in mine on the farm. Our 3 acre garden on the mountain yielded 68.

wow....that is a lot for one little space....

For the reputation of being kind of "brash" ... I've only seen one as well...they get a bad rap.....

Marie said...

Not bad at all!
