Nicely timed Ken. This Magpie is certainly working hard at the fatball. Seems to be wasting more than he eats.

A beautiful capture Ken so much detail,I know better now but when I was 7 a couple of years ago, I rescued one from a cat, the wing was damaged so could not fly, my Mother bathed the wing and nursed it back to health and was a pet for 5 years before it died, it used to jump on the table and eat the butter.

Regards

Trev.
