It's really big (and untidy!). Don't think I would have recognised it as a nest at all. Clever you for knowing.

There's a magpies nest in a tree at back of me, they come back every year to it.

Looks like they've put in the foundations and gone off to arrange a mortgage for the complete build :o)

Ah well now if the,ve gone looking for more money TT, looks like the nest will be like this for some time lol

Aye Janette esp as they put a roof on their nests - could work out pricey.

Like crows they build nests now so that trees in leaf providing cover when young arrive.Also easier for them to get in out whilst building .

Just make sure Eileen you dont leave all your jewellery on display - very partial to shiny objects.x

Wood Pigeon started to build three weeks ago ...was not bothered about the snow and ice..

i was cleaning up the garden yesterday and ive now loads of twigs so ive left them in a pile in the middle of the garden , might make it a bit easier for the magpies to finish off their nest
