Sparrows are actually rare in some areas these days...

They are.... one of the posiitives of the early fairly severe lockdown was a bit of a spread of house sparrows near me, who kept up about 3 weeks of constant chirping.... not particularly melifluous, but they just sounded happy, which in the circumstances was a joy.

Good to hear.
A few nesting pairs here have produced a fair few new additions.
Witnessed one of the most fascinating things between 2 Male house sparrows this year. Quite sad really and didnít get to them in time as at first just thought it was a brief squabble.
In fact it was a fight to the death with one being severely wounded.
I rescued it hiding it under the car but the other one was searching for it for 5 minutes after.
Nature I guess.

I remember watching a year in the Highgove house grounds and they filmed robins fighting to their death during the winter months when they become territorial and when food is scarce

Jimmy, Robins are renowned for this when as you mentioned food is scare.
As you know I feed the birds daily here. This must help Robins as we have plenty of pairs here that have produced a fair few Young this year. Sure they squabble a little but never a full on territorial fight as food is plentiful.

I guess you don't have many cats around either! Is the garden big and do you have a lot of maintenance to do on it pruning trees & cutting hedges etc

I am hoping Woolery sorts his head out and signs, Donahue is a done deal.
Reckon the next forward is more likely to be a loan and not Norwood now that BP has signed.
Just the second keeper and we are about there.

Typical Wellens fashion done the business under the radar with no fuss.
A degree of confidence in the camp ....... unleash the dark horse.

Cheers, the Norwood thoughts were more being a little greedy, although would have been some signal to others. I guess we were in for both and it was a who showed most interest back? I'd prefer an older GK, as back up. End of career job, heading towards being a coach. Just for balance.

If I were part of this squad, I'd certainly be feeling confident too. Of course, what happens on the pitch is what matters but the signs so far, look very good.

Strangely enough I have been talking to a Premier League development coach recently. However, this is the birds thread so I'll maybe pop up some more seabird pics instead  Smiley

One bastard cat that the dog chases.
Surrounded by trees and hedges that act as cover and protection from the marauding Sparrowhawk.
Have 2 tame Male Pheasants that feed twice a day. Wind the dog up a treat Smiley
Plenty of gardening but no problem with that.
