Who do these belong to? There were a few other piles of nuts and acorns like this one close by under an oak tree on the edge of a ploughed field. The deep snow would have covered them until very recently and one wonders whether the gatherer was working under the snow and then stockpiling during the freezing weather. Any information would be much appreciated!

Update 2014: These nuts could very well belong to a Jay.
