Oscar Dewhurst – Jay


Oscar writes: In my local park last Autumn there were large numbers of Jays caching food.  I wanted to photograph one with Autumn colours, so put some acorns down on the yellow leaves and lay down to wait. Before long I had 3 species of corvid in front of me: Magpies, Crows and this lovely Jay.

  1. This is one of the most important birds in Britain and of course you can kill it!! The importance comes from the fact that it plants woodland faster than we can and without a grant or ownership of the land. Not any old woodland but oak woodland well away from its parent tree and of courses that means acorns recorded up to 20 miles from that tree. What a bird. Deserves to be some charities emblem!
