Recent garden activity has seen House Sparrow numbers improving with ten on the feeders this morning.
A pitiful total I know, but looking at the few houses which surround us, we can see many of the earlier nesting holes have been blocked up both in the eaves and around waste pipes. The same goes for Starlings which used to regularly use either one of two holes in brickwork which are now cemented up. It was good to see a few Starlings in the garden this morning. They always remind me of hooligan kids.
Currently we are also seeing Blue, Great and Coal Tit, Wren, Goldfinch, Robin, Dunnock, Blackbird, Magpie and Wood Pigeon.
