I know, Richard !!! I googled it !!! As soon as you told me !!! If you ever waste your breath on me, it's not because I haven't tried

08:45 Three Magpies but the stream was very glitchy so I've ditched my video:

Nothing more up to 23:15.

Overnight and this morning up to 08:49 - not even a corvid.
