Angry squirrel

The squirrel on the left is holding its tail in a defensive, agitated position.

Was it the magpie, you or is that a dog's tail disappearing off on the far left?

Magpie, I think - the thing

Magpie, I think - the thing disappearing to the far left might be another magpie's wing (Or would that show white? There were crows about the gardens, but I don't remember them there). There was a bit of guerilla warfare going on, anyway.

Wing

Probably is a crow, magpies have white tips to their primary wing feathers.
