A very happy customer sent these pictures in. As you can see the magpies are not phased by the “big bird” flying above them. They still face into the wind and and give accurate indication of where the wind is coming from.
We pondered long and hard where to place him but felt that he is too beautiful for the backyard so we decided to be brave and put him on the peak of the roof - where a true -blue rooster should be! If he was a weather-hen, well, the back-yard would be OK. Hopefully he will be safe there. Once again, many thanks.
