Just Enough

According to the RSPB, the UK population of House Sparrows plummeted 71% between 1977 and 2008. As a child I remember seeing many of these birds each day. It then became very obvious, due to the silence of their boisterous 'chatter', that they were disappearing. I was very happy to have a small flock of these 'mischievous' little birds take up residence near to my garden recently and once again enjoy their chattering and 'cheeky' antics :)
