Jays likely as not as others have said. There are a good number of texts on 
how/why Jays bury acorns. The best recent description is in this (other 
suppliers are available) 
https://www.waterstones.com/book/wilding/isabella-tree/97815XXXXXXXX

Which goes into some detail re the germination of Oaks from Jay buried acorns 
and the way that the cotyledons are to a great extent sacrificial. They have 
even observed Jay beak marks on the stems of surviving seedlings.

Re the other tree nuts, probably due to that particular evolutionary 
specialism?

Little buggers. Did anyone see Primates, the best bit was the macacques
slapping the squirrel. I could watch that on loop.

So what's planting my oaks? And why won't it plant hazels, chestnuts,
walnuts or pine nuts?

Hi Bill, in general grays do do that; and take hazel whilst its still 
green, so much less viable.

Somebody put me right on this please, but I thought Squirrels nibbled a bit 
off acorns to stop them germinating? Jays are better at acorn planting than 
squirrels?
