Some Lodgers summer 2015

Our house is home to 2 adults and 2 kids. However, we also have swallows and house martins nesting and rearing families every years on the gables. This year a blackbird built a nest on the porch and we also have house sparrows nesting.

Did you know the House Sparrow is status Red in the UK according to the RSBP. More details can be found at which states "Monitoring suggests a severe decline in the UK house sparrow population, recently estimated as dropping by 71 per cent between 1977 and 2008 with substantial declines in both rural and urban populations. "

Here are some pics of our Blackbird and her brood
