I only saw "common" birds to list such as blackbirds, and collared doves ...

... but I saw 8 sparrows and there are more than that number of sparrows around on some days, so that's good news...

I always miss the count having worked Sat & Sun for years :(((

To capture the bird and flowers against the grey foil of the tiles, oh happy conjunction.

Lucky you, have never seen one of these birds.....

Gosh, I am surprised at how many people have never seen one. They aren't uncommon here, although to see four at one time is a real blessing (see blog). They are really beautiful though and I hope you see one soon DD!
