In a previous post I wrote about a swooping magpie. When the magpies are swooping! (Click on this blue heading and it will take you to it).
Today, for no other reason than to tell a quick story, that same magpie actually bit my husband’s ear!
Ben arrived home last Friday and said “Are there any marks on my ear, and is it bleeding?”
It was ‘yes’ to both! We could see where the beak had snapped and then actually cut! Impressive when the maggie had to fly in low and get under the helmet on an angle!
We decided Ben had been brave and that yes swooping magpies are really something to be a little scared about and yes it is ok to be scared of dangerous things!
