A Jay of Sunshine Smile

Thank You ALL for your votes, comments, clicks and views on the previous Stonechat upload....As always welcomed and appreciated.

I managed 2 hours out in the sunshine today, hide, perch and Jay obliged.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, whatever it holds.

All the best

I don't get any luck with Jays.
