uncensored extracts from Greg Becker's allotment diary
The Distressing Tale of Magpies (Magpie Behaviour 1)
Magpie- "I wonder whats making all that noise"
Songbird Chicks- " Help!"
Songbirds- "its us" "its nothing" "nice day for a song" "oh God!" "its all over"
Magpies are the gestapo of the bird world
Its 'one for sorrow' because one is enough to raid a nest
Boys may find them dead in a field and carry them home in a prams*
no doubt they have been shot by the resistance
