Seagulls, Sparrows and Starlings

Have had quite a few seagulls, starlings and sparrows around today.  The seagulls were in the fields nearby.

Tree Sparrow - see so many every day

The photo of the starlings was taken last year (but not by me) and soon the starlings will be feeding their young  and another year will have flown by.

We get so many tree sparrows here every day. I find it hard to remember that their numbers are in decline. 

When I was in town the other day I saw two or three house sparrows who did not seem at all scared of us humans.  It was in a car park which has a few bushes surrounding it.  On one of the bushes in the car park someone always hangs some bird food out and this always attracts small sparrows and large seagulls

It’s  relaxing to take time to watch the birds and wildlife around, especially on such a lovely sunny day as this.
