A couple of House Sparrows were sat next to each other calmly ignoring the constant arguments between the Blackbirds on the ground below.
Here a pair of Collared Doves were sat on top of the artificial wagon wheel taking it in turns to preen each other. It was probably this pair I saw mating the day before and one of which was snapping small branches off a miniature tree to take up to the tall Leylandii.
They stayed there for about ten minutes so I was also able to take some video which I will probably keep for Friday.
