As part of giving the house cats cats interactive entertainment we bought a rather large and high bird feeder to put in the backgarden by the full length windows.
It took a couple of weeks for the birds to overcome their fear of new stuff but we are starting to have a few more regular birds in the garden – it turns out that starlings really like fatballs!

This morning we had the first Magpie, but he wasn’t looking convinced at the bird food on offer.
So I googled “magpies eat” – the 2nd result is a YouTube video of a magpie eating a live bird. Bad Google.
I am now somewhat less fussed about if the magpies like what we are offering them, after all they can always eat the pigeons…
