'Twas a magpie

Update on the nesting honeyeaters:

It was a magpie that raided the nest. It came back again whilst I was washing the evening dishes. It had another go at the nest, but I don't think it got anything. The honeyeaters don't appear to have returned to the nest since the first incident.

A shame really, but it has also been very interesting to see the nest raided.

I did get up on a stepladder to have a look at the nest, but I was still too low to see into the nest. I am sure that any remaining chicks or eggs would have perished by now.
