‘Eksternest’ is Dutch for Magpie’s nest (Magpie: that bird with the black and white plumage). Magpies or Eksters have been observed engaging in elaborate social rituals as well as antisocial ones: the feathered friend has a well-known tendency to ‘steal’ shiny objects… So do check this nest/blog regularly for those nice and shiny bits I ‘collected’ from all over the Internest.
