Rather a smart little bird in a strange sort of way. What I was really hoping for is a Rose Coloured Starling, Everyone can dream, after all, just ask Gavin Haig. I wonder if he's stopped dribbling yet?

The garden remains central to my involvement with the local birdlife and yesterday, after mowing the lawn, I topped up the feeders and sat in my study watching the visitors. When this turned up I had to do a double take. Only a House Sparrow, but it certainly had me going when I first set eyes on it. I'd not seen this individual before, nor since!
