Can anyone tell me what bird this is please? This photo was taken in a rural North Wales area. There's a pair of them which I've seen several times since January. They are quite big and I've never seen anything like these before.
Hi Amina, you came across lovely Jays, lucky you ... they like whole peanuts as well as acorns & insects!

In reply to WendyBartter:
Hi Wendy, thanks for letting me know. I was thinking mutant chaffinches or escaped exotic birds!
