This Jay was looking for a peanut that another bird had just hidden.

The eyes of a Cormorant are almost as stunning as one of my favourite birds the Gannet

Reed warblers still here?
Are there any records of them over wintering? Or are they young yet to leave?
I'll have to look up a Gannet an see the colour of its eye.

Reed Warblers are unlikely to winter in the UK, although there has been records during the winter months.
