Maggies Again

When we went walking at Manning Park this morning Kevin, as usual, carried a plastic bag for picking up rubbish. This caused great excitement amongst the resident magpies who gathered around us, hoping for largesse. We disappointed two groups of them. We also collected a full bag of litter.

As we neared the carpark we had started from, we encountered a lady with a plastic bag. She admitted that she was the maggie feeder and we told her that she was eagerly awaited. I was tempted to backtrack and watch feeding time.

The maggies who were visiting our backyard have obviously found a better feeding ground since we haven't seen them for about a week.
