Young House Sparrows.

Once a very common visitor to our garden the House Sparrow is now somewhat of a rarity although one or two drop in for a brief feeding session from time to time. 

A trip to a coastal marsh last month provided an ideal opportunity to watch a party of youngsters in the company of their parents as they snacked on the abundant seeds.

The final shot was taken just after one youngster emerged, a little disheveled, from a waterside ditch.

Waterside Wildlife.


A recent leisurely stroll along the towpath beside the River Wey Navigation on a warm sunny day provided the following wildlife encounters.

 Common Darter.

Brown Hawker.

At one spot I watched at least half a dozen Migrant Hawkers in flight over the water and then managed to locate one individual resting overhead.

Just a few butterfly species were seen including a single Small Copper, several Green-veined Whites plus a Comma and Red Admirals.

A gentle stroll through Bushy Park today provided an opportunity to grab some images of our smallest corvid, the Jackdaw (Corvus monedula).
