Good pics Will. No, I definitely haven't seen a Jay, what a pretty bird. The little bird in the buttercups looks sad. :( He'll soon cheer up when he realises you'll give him plenty to eat. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

I can't believe you haven't seen a Jay before, they are really beautiful. We have just watched a fabulous showdown between 1 Jay and 3 Magpies, the Jay knows where I hide food, it is very clever. The Magpies watch the Jay find the nuts and proceed to attack, hoping it will drop them. The Jay outsmarts them every time, and the Magpies still haven't found the secret stash. :mrgreen:

Poor little goslingheadshortbum is a young female blackbird, she has been picked on and had a lot of her featheres plucked out, but is doing ok on her own now. I feed her everyday, she'll soon blossom. :)

I don't like Magpies, I'm glad the Jay outsmarts them. I once saw a Magpie grab a baby blackbird by the scruff of the neck and shake it. I ran outside and chased the Magpie away, but the baby bird was dead. :(

The young female blackbird does look sorry for herself, but I'm sure she'll blossom now. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

I don't know many people who like Magpies, I really do though. I know they steal eggs from nests and can be quite naughty, but they are like pretty flying penguins...who can't like a flying penguin really? :lol:

I wouldn't mind that with a few chips. :lol:

I don't know who was the most frightened, the cat or the hen. I guarded the hen until our neighbour came to retrieve it.
Keep calm and carry on.

:lol: I bet the cat was trying to figure out whether it would fit in his mouth. I don't think our cat would tackle it. Glad you kept it safe, or it would have looked like you and Mr apples were keen on pillow fighting in the garden. :wink:

If it had arrived sooner we could have had chicken instead of lamb for Sunday lunch. :lol:

Aww such a sweet hedgy! We aren't seeing hedehogs because they can't get in yet. We are going to buy some pipe and make a hedgehog house the other side of the fence. Then the hedgehogs can visit for dinner, and come and go as they please. :)

This baby hedgehog decided to climb into the cat's bowl to finish off the food. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

Awwwww so very cute! But could be considered cruel to put hedgehogs in bowls. :wink:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFCuls1J8y8 You just have to pick him up next time and feed him a cheesy wotsit. :lol:

You are lucky seeing baby hedgehogs, they are adorable, and what a fab photo! :D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXjPQYgT25Q Oh dear! :mrgreen: :lol:

I showed the hedgy video to hubby today, he thinks they are very cute. Now I have to have one as a pet...well maybe just a wotsit like the cat! :mrgreen:
