That bush is making a racket! Hang on, it’s full of house sparrows…
House sparrows are very social birds. They gather in flocks that seemingly love a chin wag. Social structure and society are very important, and they often adopt a single bush or short section of hedge as a gathering location. Protect these fiercely – if this meeting point is lost it can impact your local house sparrow population. Imagine losing your favourite café!
