With the exception of last Winter I have usually seen a few Tree Sparrows join the House Sparrows at the feeders. I had begun to worry as to what had happened to them. Therefore I was delighted recently to see one join the other sparrows at the seed feeder.
The Tree Sparrow is easily recognised by its brown head and the white cheeks with a large black spot:
Here the Tree Sparrows are usually seen down a lane with tall uncut hedges and trees but as the weather gets colder and natural food scarcer they often move to join the House Sparrows at bird feeders:
So far I think there is just one but I hope a few more may join the group for the Winter.
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
