I have a mature stand of turkey oaks across the road from my front garden, and at the back of our houses the gardens converge to form a large shrubby & grassed area. This is excellent acorn-burying territory, and the two pairs of resident jays are constantly flying to & from the oaks all day long. I've been bombed twice in the garden in the last three days, as an over-ambitious jay has lost its grip on the last of its booty held in its beak. The random scattering of acorns across the surface of the lawn suggest that this is not uncommon!
