Are house sparrows on a decline in numbers, because gardens are lacking food supply's ?

    And I never once said the word pigeon is easy to spell. But maybe Ur attempt to shame me will help embed the wobble
    :)
    Much preferred term rock dove\feral pigeon or stock dove or collard dove or turtle dove
    Or eurasian dove.
    Stock,rock, and woodpigeon all look similar

    Non need killing

I so wish u had a random off the chance stop off fly over by the long tailed.(shelly birds) I love that idea feeding in gardens :) Ty also I have been seeing lots of goldfinch on the front of the house , but still haven't tempted them into the back garden. They I notice are very fussy about Thier trees.

    I'm definitely seeing more tits around these days but that hardly surprises me in the current circumstances.

    Also, seagulls have been getting a bad press in recent years particularly because they seek 'a free meal' away from the coast, courtesy of unsuspecting tourists. I would put them on my culling shortlist too. There are enough pests around in society as it is! :eek:

    I'll let you know of any others I might add in due course.

    Harder times are coming for the little tweets,

    Will assist in setting up a day\night cam for this winter. It will be very exciting to see the results.

    Fill the food tables , supply the food stations :)

    Enjoy the autumn sounds.

    Spot the spotted woodpeckers :) good luck.

    There are generations of seagulls that have never caught a fish in their lives. Many were born and live in the high street, they depend on tourists for food, I wonder how they're coping during lockdown? We used to feed a one-legged seagull at the beach car park, we haven't been down their since March. Strange, and i know I'm soft, but I often think of that seagull, knowing that it can't compete for food. :(

    Ive kept a record of the birds that visit my garden over the past 10 years. And ive had the regular birds like sparrows. Blue tits blackbirds etc. but over years i get a few more colorful like jays and goldfinches. I recently spotted a woodpecker which was a nice looking bird. Never seen one before that.
