I joined to ask about a beautiful Magpie that has made its home in our village over the last couple of months. It has red colouring where it should be white . On one side there is a small patch of white on one wing but that’s all. Many neighbours have now spotted this bird and we are most interested to find out about it - any ideas?
Hi Lesley welcome to the community..
That is an unusual looking Magpie, I'll try and add your photos in this thread to keep them together.
