    Magpies (warning contains bird watching not Geordies)

    Does there seem to be more magpies around than ever before?

    I see them wherever I go.

      Horrible birds.
      Don't make old people mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.

      Indeed. I was watching one have a real scrap with a collared dove the other day.

      It's got to the point that I'm having to close the window at night now. The racket they make at first light and sunrise is horrendous.
      I feel sorry for people who don't drink because when they wake up, that's the best they are going to feel all day.

      Time indeed for a cull . trouble is the greenies dont see the damage they crows rooks do to the songbird populatipn even grey squirrels will take eggs amd young songbirds . Hence the reason song birds are in decline this is one of the larger factors along with habbitat. If a gamekeeper came back from 100 years ago he'd do his nut!

      My imaginary cap certainly feels over-doffed thanks to the plentitude of those wily hellbringers. Time to hire a team of magpie-flesh-loving falcons to patrol the skies and strike those white-tailed fiends to task. After that, when there's too many falcons, their natural enemy, the aardvark, will be brought out of retirement to longthintonguelick them to death.

      I have two tall fir trees at the bottom of my garden and until 3 or 4 years ago was always full of doves and blackbirds nesting......a group of magpies and jackdaws started nesting in a tree and on a roof within 100 m of my place.....we watched them systematically slaughter all the chicks and steal the eggs, now we have nothing at all nesting there.......I am getting an air rifle.
