This pair were regular visitors to the garden feeding stations. They preferred to feed on the ground but would squash themselves on to the bird-table if the fare on it appealed to them more! They were very vocal and active members of a group of birds that successfully mobbed and chased away a pair of magpies, although they were not nesting in the tree where the magpies were marauding at that time.
