Shelf Tree Sparrows

A customer called in the garage today who is friendly with the owner / farmer at the feeding station where the Tree Sparrows were discovered last week.
It appears several birders are visiting the site and there is some concern regarding his privacy.
The feeding station area is private and there is no vehicle access down the lane to the farm, this is a private road .
The birds can be viewed from the public footpath passing the area without any problems. If you visit this area please respect his privacy and stick to the public footpath.
When the farmer was asked by our customer what he thought of these uncommon birds visiting his garden he said he was not bothered for Sparrows but loved his Goldfinches.

The only thing of note today in Queensbury was a large flock of 60 + Jackdaws flying around the Granby Fields area most of the day very noisily. The only big numbers of Jackdaws we usually get over the village is morning and evening with roost birds heading too and from Wilsden/ Hewenden.

                                 Jackdaws galore, very high.

Thanks for the Tree Sp request Bri.
Plenty Jackdaws around - they are looking really smart now in fantastic plumage. A good time for some photos!

Reckon those Jackdaws are in display mode as I watched a very similar flock over Northowram yesterday.

When I started birding in the sixties a jackdaw was a mega tick locally.

The big wall at Bare Head is a great place for them.
