The most magpies I've ever seen together in one group ('mischief'?? 'charm'???) is four. I thought my varifocals were playing up. Can anyone rustle up a five or a six?

Blimey I saw 13 once. Well, that was as far as I counted before they dispersed.

Would this have been on the way home from a pub?

Travisina - yes, the 'Magpie' title sequence was ideal for tripping-out kids. For some reason, it didn't go up to 13. Opportunity missed.

Working my way through, so far, I've got 25 / 40. It's great fun - there are some truly terrible Brad-quality puns in there!

One of Pterry Pratchett's books talks about magpie rhymes. Folklore of the Discworld, I think it's called.
I used to be such a sweet sweet thing
Till they got a hold of me.

I don't think I've ever seen that many. Probably why 'five for silver, six for gold' - 'cos it's rare. Here's the 1968 TV theme tune -
Magpie - got to love those Sergeant Pepper inspired graphics!


That takes me back. Though this is the version I'm more familiar with.

Tommy Boyd was what would be called in near-current parlance 'a total lege'. Tom and Noakesy would be in my fantasy hybrid Magpie/Blue Peter line-up, probably with Jenny Hanley.

Do you think it should have its own thread, so people can post replies?
I finally got the last one (#26) after NP provided a clue. It was driving me nuts!

I'll set it up after the Rewatch. Juggling multiple tabs at the moment!

How very dare you! It was on school grounds. So, yes, before you can say it, it was a lòooooooooooooooooooong time ago. Pfft

Last night, I was watching "Animals" on YouTube as part of my weekly B7 binge. It was a good episode but good Lord, that ending is really sad. I believe y'all know what I'm talking about.

Anyway, I had that episode plus the three preceding episodes I also watched that night on a playlist with a video from my favorite YouTuber Stuart Ashen at the very end.

So, the episode was just ending and I was about to cry over poor, poor Dayna mourning the death of her beloved Justin when the episode ends and, since the uploader cut the credits off, immediately cuts to the Ashens video I put in my playlist which began with him saying "Welcome back to the sofa of pain." I went from nearly crying to laughing my behind off at the sudden mood whiplash. Grin

To return to the birdwatching: just to let you know that I've seen some swallows. They arrived on the 18th and they're checking out the stable where they nested last year, so it's looking promising. Also heard a cuckoo today.
Thanks to those of you who took the time to look.
Cheers.

I recently finished editing the first 3 series of Blake's 7 (I'm not doing every episode and series 4), I hope you enjoy it! https://www.youtu...xUpJWFiZjj

I heard a loon earlier. I've only heard them before in more remote rural areas.
