This, as you know, is gorgeous Gerald. I adore Gerald, he visits regularly, landing right at the shed door and looking in with plaintive eyes or gawking through the window to see what's happening. Or sometimes he sees me and comes running in that ungainly way that magpies do, with his wings half open and that magpie waddle. I had been a bit bothered because Gerald seemed to have been abandoned by his fellow magenpies, there used to be a group of six that visited for treats regularly. There starting being magpie biffo going on, with lots of warbling and swooping and brawling with each other. End result is that the rest of the magpies don't visit any more. So, Gerald is getting fat on the spoils of the humans who feed him, but he didn't seem to have any friends.
