Here's the Magpie minding its own business.
And here's Poppy trying unsuccessfully to hide behind the grey pipe at the end of the roof! (you can see the first Magpie in the bottom left of the photo).
The Magpie sets up a right racket and is soon joined in the tree by its mate, both of them making a lot of noise!
Poppy tries to crouch down even more at this second arrival (her tail is waving madly at this point)! The Magpies continue their scolding.
Poppy is so disconcerted by this that she decides that discretion is the better part of valour and attempts a ignominious retreat.
Oooops, that's a bit steep and slippy......
Perhaps I should try a bit further along.....
Nope, still very steep and very slippy.......on second thoughts, I better just go back they way I came in the first place!
She slunk back into the house via the bathroom window and spent the rest of the day on the bed!
This one seemed just a wee bit smug I think! (-:
That's probably the last time she tries to sneak up on those Magpies! (-:
