A Peanutty Sparrow

Unexpected – but very welcome – a rare little house sparrow has turned up in the back garden this week.

How sad it is to say ‘a rare little house sparrow’. But it’s true. Sparrows, once very common, are now becoming increasingly scarce.

So we need to treasure every sparrow, and every other little ‘brown job’, that flies in from out of the ether, from out of nowhere.

A delight they are to see. Especially when they’re munching peanuts.
