1 for sorrow, 2 for gold

Take a 3 metre long, 3" wide length of tin foil, slightly crumpled-up. Peg a length of fishing line at one end of the foil, then thread sweetcorn on to the thread at 4" intervals. The Magpies are attracted to the foil and then eat the sweetcorn. The line is ingested and forms a ball in their gut, trapping them.

Once you've done that, go and buy an air-rifle.

1 for sorrow,
2 for joy,
3 for a girl,
4 for a boy,
5 for silver,
6 for gold
7 for a secret never to be told,
8's a wish
9's a kiss
10 is a bird you must not miss.

Get up earlier to collect the eggs, buy an air rifle.
