Strange goings on!!
The other day, I went to use two hard-boiled eggs, which had been in the 'fridge for a few days. Obviously a few days too long, so I threw them outside, (minus shells) for our cats (we have four).
When I looked outside, a little later, our 'old fella' (17+) was busy eating them. What was strange though, was that so to were six magpies!! No body seemed bothered!!
Magpies had the blackbird chicks in my Garden, the noise they make is terrible and hearing the Blackbird screaming at them was even worse.
Nature can be so cruel, feel like shooting the buggers.
Agree ........I have been known to bash the hedges (what little the neighbours have left me with!!) to scare the magpies off away from the nests......nature is indeed cruel sometimes
