I have a couple of families of magpies living around the plot. They take on average a coiuple of hen eggs a week which they go in the hen house to thieve, but they have also taken the odd chick before now, but then so have the jackdaws. Can't net the chicken run as it is too big. So I have to live and let live, until they get too many.
Hi Kate,I have just been watching the Goldfinch picking up the dog fur from the garden,It's better than painting the bedroom walls,They have been coming in the garden all week so it's dog grooming time to give them a nice warm nest,
