The Magpie was a brilliant publication put out by the Manchester Wildlife Group, later the Manchester Wildlife Trust, and then finally Manchester Wildlife.
Its long-term editor, Ian Brown, is a friend of mine, and has kindly given me his physical copies, which have since gone to a good home (Manchester Museum). He’s also given me permission to digitise and upload them. (They are a priceless source of information about some things I am particularly interested in, around how Manchester City Council manages discontent among the population around its pave-the-planet policies…)
I have uploaded the lot, except issue 7.
I am also creating html versions of some of the articles see here for a list..
