Magpie - a very unusual sight to see the magpies actually in the garden, but they're so hungry they're beginning to approach the feeders.

Lovely shots Sheryl - doesnt it make a difference when there is a blue sky behind them.

Good colours with the Magpie, they can be difficult to get right. We have loads of them around here and a couple do come into our garden, but strangely enough, I havent seen them over the last 3 days so dunno where they have gone to get their food.

Thanks, Linda. The magpies round here are really being quite brave at the moment. Hunger tends to rule their behaviour I think.

Looking at our forecast, I think the blue sky might be gone for a few days. We'll see. At the moment I'm wondering how I'm going to get out to get the shopping in. I went out yesterday to the local shops on foot and had a spectacular fall whilst crossing the road!!! Won't be doing that again in a hurry.

Since the Magpie is a crow he'll do what ever it takes Sheryl. You've captured him quite well. Good series.

Many thanks Joe and Ken. Yes, I do love the colours on the magpie - always a very striking bird to see.
