Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

My bird visits have dropped off again. Even the usual suspects seem to be fewer in number. I may have had a Sprawk visit to scare them off but I didn't see it. :(

Have a house sparrow currently roosting under the porch roof. It flew out at dusk but came back. So just went out with a small torch and found it.

I still have two that visit JS. No sign of hibernating. Is on the warm side though.
