Hi Tahir,
        Full the full gen, read Frans Vera, 'Grazing Ecology & Forest 
History' (ISBN 0-85199-442-3) - he considers that jays and oaks co-evolved; 
lot of controversy about his ideas, with some become passionate believers, 
and others calling the former 'Vera Groupies' 
Its nice to keep an open mind....

Thanks, I know jays are a major spreader of pine nuts in the US. Never knew 
about the acorns.

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.
Useless sodding creatures....

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?
