    Default Magpies on the Roof

    Every morning at daybreak they're up there pecking at the veluxes and scurrying across the tiles.

    Driving me insane.

    One of them even got inside the window so it was wedged between the blind and the glass before it fell out into the room and went mental.

    Got the blind up and flipped the window over to let it out before I got lacerated.

    Don't know what it is that attracts them to the windows. Had a similar thing with rooks throwing themselves against the kitchen window a few years ago & came to the conclusion that they could see their own reflections & didn't like it.

    I'm sure they make good pies.

    Magpies like socks

    I was in my neighbour's conservatory the other day and they were fighting on the roof, it sounded like a B52 strike on an Iraqi village.

    I had 3 cats having a gangland war on my house roof the other night. Christ knows how they got up there.

    You need a killer then! Cat#1 makes short works of squirrels and any small birds. Seagulls are beyond it. But magpies and pigeons are no issue.
