Thread: Magpies

  1. #1


    Any tips on finding where magpies are setting up home, I have a couple on one of the farms I shoot over and having a little trouble catching up with them, seem to be a little finicky to get close to them. (Thankfully still live in an area where they are still few and far between, infact it's the first for many a year)

    Right in the thickest patch of thorn or other cover on the place , larsens catch pies better if you push the into cover rather than in the open

    Many thanks for the reply, when the weather breaks I'll have a look, as there is a lot of snow on the ground this morning.

    Blow them outs the tree , whilst they nest before the leaves hide the dam things, get some good 3" goose carts & blow them away along with the crows & rooks nesting too !
