Birds Again: Sparras
OK, so I'm posting a lot about birds at the minute...
Anyway, when we moved into our house eight years ago there were plenty of sparrows, now they are scarce. According to the Guardian, this decline is because gardens are too tidy to support enough insects. As a result, baby sparrows starve in the nest in their first four days. All my bird seed won't help either - they need those insects.
So, spare a thought for those poor little chicks and don't tidy your garden this winter. And, obviously, lay off the pesticide.
