14/06/2022 A new visitor to the garden.....

Apologies for no blogs.  We have a lot going on in our lives at the moment. Hopefully, July will be calmer.

Eurasian jay (Garrulus glandarius).
The first arrival here in the garden was in May. I have seen them often nearby, but in heavily wooded areas and I have never managed a photo of this very shy bird.



Then in June I managed a few more photos.







Then last week there were two 😊
