House Sparrows breeding on Telegraph poles




              The well hidden Telegraph pole
      Contains 1 House Sparrow nest with 3 now fledged
     .  Don,t think the telephone engineer will be a happy chappy
   Excuse rain on lens but it was my dinner time.
 Queensbury,s a good stronghold for House Sparrow

Another dull day up here in the gods with low cloud, mist and drizzle brightening late afternoon.
The above telegraph pole, which is completely covered in climbing foliage , has been the home to a pair of House Sparrows which now have 3 young fledglings. Queensbury is still a prime stronghold to House Sparrows which have had an excellent breeding season this year and we can have up to 40 birds in the garden at one time with a record last year, post breeding, of 72.
Gulls are becoming a more common sight now with birds returning daily. 6 LBBs were seen today and 3 Black Headed.
Raggalds Flood is still refusing to produce the good with 3 Woodpigeons and 2 Rabbits this evening in a rapidly drying up field.
