It means that the population has seriously declined and they're considered endangered.

House Sparrows are on the Red List.

I love the alpinas too Bekkie - so pretty and no trouble at all.  The other alpina on that fence that I'm particularly fond of is a pink Willy

Apparently Red Admirals have started to overwinter in parts of the UK, and then on sunny days they'll pop out to feed - yet another reason why it's so important to have some nectar-rich flowers around at this time of year

A lovely afternoon here too Nut - not that we've had time to be outside - busy sorting and boxing up books so that the builders can move the bookshelves and decorate in the sitting room and dining room this week - but we remarked on how lovely the ashtrees looked with the sunlight on their branches this afternoon
