Acorn thief

I spotted a Woodpecker in my garden which is a pretty rare sighting.

All exited I quickly put up my hide, chucked some acorns around the place and hoped that he would be back.

No of course not, I should be so lucky ..

but a Jay turned up instead and nicked one of my acorns.

A beautifully colored bird and so very shy, three klicks with my camera and he was gone.

 

But, I got the picture and am very happy with it, hopefully the Woodpecker will turn up another day again :-)
