Three magpies were involved in this skirmish at Farnham park, it lasted about 3-4 mt's
No interactions present.
Excellent opportunistic photos
These sort of pics materialise when your packing up.
Yes this is always due to interloper males in the Magpies territory during the breeding season

I still wonder what the third Magpie was doing?
Corvids are well known for joining in with fights, it is common for them to watch or scrap too
