Same here, my sparrows seem to have had a good year also. Been plenty of young ones. Not noticed them still taking food though.

Speugs are just about the only fevvered visitors I'm getting lately - had about 20 today.
They're getting rich pickings all to themselves ...... apart from 1 juvenile robin, 3 blackbirds and 1 dunnock.
I guess that's it now until winter kicks in :(

Same here Placi. I can add a few members of the pigeon family to your list but not much more. :(

Something my Mum in Law saved for me, which I thought was worth sharing:

What has become very obvious over the past week is that my Sparrow population has decreased by at least half. This is the first time I've noticed a sudden drop in numbers and I have wondered why. My theory is that as we are now approaching the nesting season they have split up to regain their territory where they usually nest. I hope I am correct as I would be mortified if they has come to any harm.
