Wild life in the area.

When out on my daily walk I love to see what wild life is in the area. One of the most common for us to see is the Magpie and this one was more than happy to have his photo taken.

This one has his feathers all fluffed up due to the cold wind that was blowing at the time. Those sharp beaks have sent many a person to the hospitals for stitches in their heads. As those beaks are sharp as and nothing is worse than a protective magpie in breeding season swooping in to take a chunk out of your head.

Their call is one of the most beautiful calls I can think off and nothing is lovelier than a family of magpie calling and talking to each other as they go about their lives.
