Thornhillhead N.Devon

The magpies that nested high up in our Leylandii have been successful. Initially 4 youngsters perilously hopping about not knowing what to do but could only see 3 in the garden this morning demanding food from their parents without much success, although parents did see off an inquistive crow. Interesting parent behaviour – what I think is the female has also been sidling up to the male fluttering her wings with mouth agape apparently asking for food but being ignored.
