House Sparrow

It has been a while since I have done any photos from the garden as the light has not been good enough to give nice photos when I have had time to sit down with my camera.  At this time of year the light is only really good for a couple of hours in the early afternoon. Therefore here is a lovely House Sparrow that I photographed at the end of November.

House Sparrow in the sun

A lovely House Sparrow sitting in the sun waiting to get onto the feeders. This time of the year the feeders are very busy, but the time that the sun is shining on them is quite limited, so it is lovely when all the elements come together like this.

See, they can play nicely when they want! This photo shows the 3 main types of birds we get on the kernels feeder. The one that is missing is the Blue Tit.
