The Cockney Sparrow (The House Sparrow ) is declining in many parts of Britain.
London is one of the places where numbers are reducing – BUT
At the Tower of London there are a happy band of sparrows that are fit, well and thriving.
There is going to be a viewing area set up near the Tower Shop at the Tower of London so that visitors and Londoners can see these little sparrows – and hopefully find out what they can do to help the House Sparrow.
These Tower of London House Sparrows are happy chappies who spend a lot of their time hopping onto the cafe tables, chirping as loud as they can and generally enjoying themselves unafraid of anyone or anything around them.
In other places in London city the numbers of sparrows are reducing – it would be really good if something could be done to increase sparrow numbers.
The RSPB are running a Nature event over four weekends
From July 31st to Sunday 23rd August the events will be each Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Tower of London
I won’t be able to go, but if anyone can get I’d love to know about it.
