Jay - Garrulus glandarius



Date: 15th Feb - 3PM
Location:  Bath Botanical Gardens


Observation:  A rather dull and overcast, but decided to pop up to the Botanical Gardens, in Bath. Alot of dog walkers and people about, so Squirrels, Jay's and other birds were quite jumpy, we did manage to attract in some Pigeons, Great Tits, Squirrels + Jay's with some Monkey Nuts and Peanuts, where they all seemed very hungry! After photographing them for about 10-15 minutes and get muddy from lying down, we walked around a few times to try and find the Brambling spotted yesterday, no luck with that, but alot of Chaffinches. No Kingfisher either on the bottom lake, but there were alot of Gull's which all flew off together so a possible Peregrine fly-over also. Got some nice pictures of the Jay which we don't really see by us, so almost a nice bird to spot!




Weather:  Cloudy and Overcast - Warm
Other Species: Blackbird, Magpie, Crow, Feral Pigeon, Wood Pigeon, Jay, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Chaffinch - Of Note
