The Magpies are infrequent visitors to our garden but when they arrive we know about it! They like the fat feeders and because of their size tend to leave devastation behind them!

Still they add variety and have a bit more character than the loafing Wood pigeons! The Magpies appear in our garden in twos or threes - Two for Joy and Three for a girl!
