In the eighties I used to stop counting at 20 when the sparrows descended on my garden. The wild patch og groud at the back of my garden was bought and tidied up by my neighbour. Loss of habitat meant loss of sparrows till about three tears ago. One arrived on its own and so far three have been feeding regularly with my robin, pair of blackbirds, pair of bramblings, three bluetits and one chaffinch. I have erected a birdbox and their are lots of hedges and a spinney in my garden so I hope to see my count increasing year by year.
