I can’t be sure what happened to this Magpie – it was soaked and shaking – but I suspect it had a narrow escape from a bird of prey, as Peregrines nest not too far from where it was sitting. It may have been struck, stunned but not caught, and plummeted in to the sea. Somehow the Magpie had made it from the water to the front yard of a nearby apartment building, and I can only hope it was able to recover fully from its drenching.
