On the way back from the Waterfront Pub in Pewsey last night, b0atg1rl and I came across a young magpie sat on the tow path; which ended up falling in the cut.

Fishing the poor lil thing out we then proceeded to try and warm it up, feed and water it.

Getting up this morning, I went to the box we had left it in, and it had got up and escaped. a quick look round nbArianrhod, found it sat on the floor next to the bed.

Left it on the backdeck while I got ready for work; when I left, it had gone. b0atg1rl says that she last saw it running around on the towpath chasing bugs.
