I love Magpies, I think they are one of our most beautiful and charasmatic birds. I don’t believe in any of that superstitious twoddle and think they get a lot of bad press (undeservedly)!
Yes, they may take chicks but that’s nature, they have their own young to feed too – it’s not as though they’re like cats (don’t get me started on them!).
I think they are quite comical birds when you watch them hop around, they’re kind of like the “geezers” of the bird world!

Their irredescent feathers are gorgeous especially when the sunlight catches them just right. I had 5 in my garden today, all chasing each other round & “playing”, until a Rook came down and told them where to go!

(The photos a bit blurry, I’m afraid)
