no neil,magpies arnt wonderful creatures,they take a lot of young chicks and eggs out of lots of nests,theres way too many of them about.

I agree with Kesh, magpies are part of the Crow family, aswell as Jackdaws, Carrion and Rooks. They are destructive birds and will indeed steel eggs and small birds. After saying that, it is nature.

Niel seems to have mistaken this Jay as a Magpie. None the less, it isn't one. It's a Jay.
Jays are also part of the Crow family and are, in fact, one of the predators of that family who will eat the chicks of other birds, straight from the nest.
Nice to look at, and say awwwwww., but, as Colin has said, it's nature.
