It has certainly been a few years since we had any Sparrow families in the garden, and tonight I counted 3 separate broods feeding in the garden. It looks like Sparrows are on the come-back. Sorry about the reflections etc, but I could not get too close to the window for fear of scaring them off and the sun was reflecting on the window as well.
