In Druridge Pools blog yesterday the issue of Magpie control was raised which led me to unearth a couple of videos showing how nature's own pest controllers, Sparrowhawks, deal with Magpies.
Not for the faint hearted!
Yesterday I had a Sparrowhawk in my garden. Today I have Magpies nest building. I see trouble ahead!
Why are magpies so often hated?
