Author's notes

Probably a nest somewhere at Yankee Hat but they are notorious for abandoning so didn't bother to look.

Hi Chris
In response to your email, I have downloaded the original of the image with the magpie, cropped it and added it back to make it clear what the main subject is.
Hi Roy
Fabulous photos. With two birds in the main photo it was a tricky issue to ID.
