    Flock of magpies

    Magpie numbers seem to getting ever higher, I was out for a walk this afternoon and saw a flock of over 25!

    How does this compare with the sorts of numbers that you are seeing?

    I see a big fat one every day on the car park at work and daydream about popping it with my air rifle.

    Interesting to speculate on 22.

    22 for an open ticket?

    22 for a cool FEO?

    I would love to get out after the 25 I saw, but they were in the grounds of a water treatment plant.

    Sounds like the local keepers need to pull their fingers out.

    Not to many around here but have waged war on the buggers for a few years now.
    The results are no more broken eggs in the hen house and we appear to have a significant increase in the song bird/small bird population compared to a few years ago.
