Magpies

Post by -Ian- on Sat Jul 01 2017, 12:40

No I'm not on the wrong forum but Magpies have it in for me I'm sure!!

We have a loft extension and on a lot of mornings get woken by the Magpies playing football with some old bone or something like that the flat roof but they have now extended their annoyance. I had a bit of a mystery this past week in that Flo would go outside do what she needs to only for me to go out a little while later to clear up after her but it seemed to disappear i dont know

Yesterday Flo was sunning herself and I looked out the window to see 5 of the blighters in the garden looking like they were in formation to get Flo, one got as near as 6 inches away and was squarely looking at Flo's bum Surprised so I got up and obviously they took flight leaving Flo none the wiser Rolling Eyes

Sometime later Flo had done what she needed to so I went to get a bag and clean up only to return to a Magpie dishing the dirt... Literally sick so now the mystery of the missing poo is solved. Now, do I take this as being helpful in that I'll be using less poo bags or a pain in the backside cos they spread it everywhere raised eyebrows

Ugh, I feel your pain but with crows here.

I would personally prefer to be using extra bags than play minefield to avoid poo remains. Just hope they're not attacking Flo because one of my cats came home with a huge hole pecked in his head (though cat would take on bugger prey than voles and mice Wink )

They are just so brazen and I didn't realise they went for dog poo, I guess we learn all the time.

Oh great, now I'll be waiting for it. We don't have magpies much but the rooks have just moved in. Like black magpies except bigger. And noisier.
