Heard a very loud 'mewing' this morning. All the sparrows and starlings scarpered. Looking up for a Buzzard, I found a Jay on a tree-top. This appears to be a common practice according to older posts, although I rarely see Jays from the garden at this time of year. Strange why it should do this if it was just passing over ?
I've heard jay "mewing "; it might be the jay's version of a song.
