    I have been woken up with the dogs barking at a loud tapping noise at about 7.00 every morning. This morning I was up early with my remaining pup and heard the tapping again. I went out onto the landing and there on the ledge outside the window was a magpie. He was'nt after insects as he was tapping the middle of the window. I have seen him a few times on the ledge outside the livingroom window just walking along and hopping down. I said to my oh jokingly that hes most probably been trained to burgle peoples houses lol. He just looked at me stupid. I have heard of magpies stealing shiny things though so I'm not mad in that respect :lol:;) He could have been hand reared and is just wanting a bit of human interaction!!! What do you think???

    It goes back a long way, someone once told me that a lone magpie was one that had lost its mate so was sorrowful as they supposedly mate for life
