A Squabble of Sparrows

Sparrow on branchThere’s regularly ten or twelve sparrows munching at the feeder parked on a fence rail next to a fence post.

There’s a thick privet, ivy, holly and honeysuckle hedge on the other side of the fence so they play in and out of the hedge.

They greatly annoy the passing cats of the district who have no chance of catching them.

Oh and it has cost me a fortune over the winter to feed them. What they spill is cleared up by either the robin who also wants my worms or the collar dove which hovers up a great amount.

If it’s a good day, the little wren will come past and if no-one else has put anything out then the black birds come for a raid.
