Thread: Magpies everywhere

    Magpies everywhere

    Is it just me or is the countryside alive with magies at present. Out on Tues am, 12 in one bush, shot 3, must have seen 50+ this am on route to work, pairs and groups. Cannot ever remember seeing so many.

    Also good news picked up a multi catch Larsen trap this am, just need a decoy to start the urban cull.

    between the cats and the magpies I am surprised any survive where I live

    How strange, for a while now I have seen no more than 1 or 2 whenever I have been on my shoot.
    Today I go over to do some work, (no gun) and there were Magpies everywhere I looked, including a group
    of 30 plus sitting on a track, they stayed there untill I was no more than 25 yards away, and then
    only flew 30 yards out in to the field, looked in the mirror and they were back on the track before I
    was 100 yards past them.

    75 or so Jackdaws, 15 or so Rooks and 5 or so Magpies here.

    No evening up the odds here though, just found living very close to an Anti of the PHD in Art variety, very gainfully unemployed since he passed out 2 years ago and benefiting from 20 hours a day in bed!
    I wish he'd fly the nest!

    Seem to have the Maggies under reasonable control. Just trying to muster people for a Crow slaughter on Sunday night, been and cased the roost tonight and could have fired well over a hundred shoots and i wasn't even in the the main wood.

    If anyone is interested pm me!
