Whilst off work last week due to man flu, I dragged myself out for a slow saunter about the patch. And scored with a full fat patch tick: jay, flying low along a hedgerow. I recall Ali Miller (some might remember him?) telling me they were regular at a site 10 km away in the 1980's, and I recently saw one while driving to buy plumbing supplies about 2 km from the patch. But all this counts as nothing as it's now on the patch. Thumbs up for corvids.
