After a very hot morning yesterday, a cool change brought strong gusty winds with it.
There were small branches and leaves blowing around and I think this young magpie may have been blown off course too.
I first noticed him when I looked out the kitchen window this morning. He was very quiet and not moving much.
These young birds are usually very noisy and demanding food if their parents are nearby but this one was all alone.
After a little while he spread his wings tentatively and flew into a higher tree where the magpies often congregate.
I hope he found his way back home.
