Favourite's Collection #296

This photograph of a Common Sparrow was taken yesterday in Northlands, Wellington, New Zealand. It's really pleasing to find a thriving community of Sparrows! Having grown accustomed to Sparrows being everywhere in the UK up to the 1990's, it was such a shock to have returned to the UK after a decade or more absence, to find that Sparrows are no longer commonplace in the UK countryside. In the last two and a half years I'd seen barely a dozen Sparrows. Yet in the space of two days, here in Wellington, I've counted at least 200 sparrows!!
