A Jay in the garden.

There are three common birds that I struggle to get decent shots of and these are Jays,Green Woodpeckers and Common Buzzards.They all spot me miles away and fly off to the next county.I did OK with a Common Buzzard earlier in the week and got some half decent shots of one perched (see last post) and today I did OK with a Jay.

It was about 9.00 AM and I was scanning my own and my neighbour's garden for Lesser Redpolls that had visited recently but was struggling to see much in the misty conditions when suddenly a Jay landed on my garden fence.I was lucky to rattle off a few shots before it flew off.Not a bad spot for a small suburban garden.
