Magpie City

Almost every day at least twice a day I have to sing out "Good Morning/Afternoon Mr Magpie!"

Manchester is FULL of Magpies, it's actually bizarre. And yet there are never more then 2-3 together. The majority of the time it's just one, hence the greeting!

In fact as I'm writing this I can see two outside of my window

Not the greatest pics I grant you but you get my point!

One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret, never to be told
Eight for a wish
Nine for a kiss
Ten for a bird you must not miss
