p.s. I won't care if Magpies are nesting at mums.
Saturday afternoon there was such a noise outside five !! Blackbirds were chasing off a huge Magpie..the damn thing kept trying to drive a blackbird into the hedging. Yesterday morning carnage on our lawns( in three areas) and next door. Obviously blackbird remains. It did me no good when I opened the blinds to see it pecking and eating bloody sinew from a wing. OH collected and disposed of all the remains, Three feet, some internal organs, wings and beaks, at least two had been killed.
We have had a solo rook around for a few days and when the Magpie came back today it chased it and eventually it took off. I had wondered if the rook was the culprit and Magpie just feeding, don't think so as the other birds aren't scared of the rook but head for the hills when that damn thing comes back.
