We have a lot of these in our area and what wonderful birds they are. They make amazing noises and perform acrobatic antics eating the olg grapes off the vine. I love them and they are a welcome sight that bring joy.

Re: Garrullus Glandarius Atricapillus

They are lovely looking birds and it is also true what Teresa says about them, but I don't like them because they steal baby birds out of the nests and also kill and eat the baby tortoises.

Shirley they are in the crow family and according to my books they should be present around Alanya.

I didn't know that, I had never considered that side of it. As they are crow related I should not be surprised at hearing this news.

Re: Garrullus Glandarius Atricapillus

Jays eating baby birds is no different from sparrowhawks eating robins, great tits eating caterpillars or bats eating mossies. It is all to do with the food chain they are all necessary to keep nature in balance.

Re: Garrullus Glandarius Atricapillus

John you are quite correct. I remember years ago sitting on the cliffs at Dover looking out over the channel and seeing dozens of magpies, which birds are also from the same family. I remember being told that their numbers increase when there are plenty of smaller birds to eat, but when they have almost exhausted their supply then the numbers of magpies will decrease until there are sufficient prey again. A case of swings and roundabouts.
