Jay diet (1 Viewer)

Welsh Peregrine

Well-known member
Anyone else seen a Jay eat a snail? It came down to the patio, hopped over the edge and probed the base of a plant, picked out a decent sized adult Garden Snail, flew about 10m into an Oak tree, and with the snail shell mouth facing upwards, extracted the snail and ate it. Fascinating to see.

Not a Jay, but did see this Song Thrush last year (winter) in my garden.
