Jay in the Park 15/11/2016

"I saw a jay - possibly this one - last week; I think it was burying nuts in the wildflower perennial meadow. A squirrel was doing the same. I think Des has recorded a few sightings."

"A strange-looking fly (Sicus ferrugineus) on a Corncockle flower. Corncockle are apparently practically extinct in the wild, only known from wildflower mixes such as this."
