I forget how lucky we are to have House Sparrows here, now that they’re declining in number so quickly, until someone points it out. A couple of days ago a friend was here and he mentioned it. He actually lives five minutes away from here, yet he says they just don’t see them in the garden at all – amazing, really. So, I took a photo – not brilliant because they were in the shadow while I was taking a photograph in the garden, but here are two of the curious little rascals. I was watching the first baby of the year, earlier today, as the parents were feeding him/her – lovely!
