Great fun watching the Sparrows and Dunnocks feeding off the seeds in the bushes this weekend. Our caravan makes a great hide, I can sit in comfort taking photos through the open window.
It has been a busy morning on the feeders. As soon as one leaves, the next bird is waiting to take it’s place. Sometimes they don’t wait that long before making it known it is their turn. 🙂
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.
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.

I love this photo, not technically great, but I love the Four Sparrow chicks waiting to be fed on the fence.
Another photo from yesterday’s chick fest. This baby Sparrow was looking at the Daisies wondering if they were edible.
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.
At the moment, there are lots of Sparrows in the garden, almost as many as the Goldfinches. Next door to us has a long established hedge and they are nesting there and feeding in our garden. Great to watch.
