Hi John,
I have witnessed Magies hunting and feeding on mice on a couple of occasions and managed to photograph the behaviour a couple of years ago. I've all so seen two immature maggies attack and kill a Willie Wagtail. They didn't eat it but just threw it around and played "tag" with it. Even though others might disagree with my actions, I did try to intervene and stop them killing the williewag, but it was too late.
