Interesting nest, what's it made of? Looks like it's a few seasons old yeah?
I know the green parts are lichen, I'm guessing the rest is just grass, hair, something that bends easily.
I think they rebuild every year. At least I haven't seen one used two years in a row.

How fast does lichen grow, that nest is glued on🤣? Google reckons 1mm per year.

Mrs Magpie here last year changed her nest location still in the front tree, she took apart the original and remade it on a big old side branch last season. Her original nest was right in the crown of the tree which was 3 years old, she'd just rebed it each year.

That original spot went through one hell of a storm and didn't come down, i named that new magpie Stormy. But these trees bigger side branches seem to get weaker and snap and i hate the thought of it coming down in the spring winds.

Won't be long and Swoops will be chased away buy mum & dad and i gotta start all over again🙁.
