Fledgling peril

I HAVE noticed many Magpie babies dead on the road.

The reason they are getting killed is because motorists are mainly of the impression that they will fly away on hearing a vehicle.

These young Magpies have yet to learn the dangers and road rules, so would it be too much to ask all motorists to take care if you see a mob of Magpies on the road.

It doesn’t take much to slow down, toot or go round them.

So please be aware and save our wildlife – that goes for Bobtails as well.
