Unknown UK bird

Hi, This camera shy bird appears every day or so and I just cannot identify it.


It doesn't seem to eat anything just appears, looks around then goes away ... It is about the size of a blackbird.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Do you have Clark's Nutcrackers in England? They are part of the Jay family and it certainly looks like it belongs to that family.
