Thank you all for your so wonderful comments and votes following yesterday 'Silly Sunday' upload.

Todays upload was captured a little while ago whilst I was having a spot of lunch at a local park. Normally one can never get close enough to a Magpie to capture him or her, however on this occasion he or she was rather forthcoming and was only to willing to pose for a biscuit.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead, for me who knows.

Regards as always Nathan
