Hi, Very interesting posts. I live in Devon.
I would like to tell you that last year I noticed a House sparrow chasing a Jackdaw for over 40 metres including 4 change of directions – quite a coincidence as the sparrow was less than a metre away from the Jackdaw.
Isn’t it amazing the things that happen in our countryside. I wonder what Bill Oddie would say to that.
House sparrow chasing a jackdaw goes against all the normal bird behaviour that you can think of.
Through people getting in touch with me I have heard of a lot of ‘bullish’ sparrow behaviour. Maybe I should write a book!
Thanks for telling us about this. I wish I’d seen it.
