Heard a most unusual noise (that I do not associate with magpies) and there was this harassed looking parent feeding what I assume is an adolescent bird that looked quite capable of feeding itself. Eventually the youngster decided that sitting on the ground was making it too easy and flew up into a tree so the parent bird would have to fly back and forth.
Back in the same area, with its mate. Still limping.
Haven't seen one here for a while. A grey backed individual foraging in the grass.
