Return of the Magpie

Holly has had a bit of a problem with magpies lately. Most mornings we go through the same ritual. The magpies notice that Holly's food is being served up and will gather, one will be brave and come forward to try to steal some food, Holly will then chase the offending bird away, while another one takes it as an opportunity to grab some food and fly off before Holly comes back. This usually goes on for a few minutes until most of the magpies have gotten a turn to steal some breakfast, and Holly finally realises that if she eats the food the birds can't get it.
