I freely admit I am new to this whole gardening-and-bird-watching malarkey but I might be getting a feel or understanding of what happens and when. I stress might
Last year we had two magpies in the garden, from April onwards, who disappeared around November. Earlier this week two returned but whether they are the same two I don't know: neither do I know if they are a pair. They are haunting the garden and have now discovered the drive, hanging around all the feeders and one just had a fierce squabble with a wood pigeon.
I know I can google magpies and discover what-is-what-and-why but (call me old-fashioned because I am) I wondered if any of you have noticed the same? Currently we have blue tits, long-tailed tits, blackbirds, collared doves, robins, sparrows, fat wood pigeons and wrens plus two magpies hanging around, but no crows (yet). DD
Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben
