Sparrows don’t seem to mind

Thursday was a horrible day even allowing for it being the middle of winter. No sunshine, it was a dull misty murky cold day with outbreaks of light rain or drizzle at times. At least we didn't get any snow.

From noon onwards we had some light rain. It might well have been this rather rare freezing rain but I didn’t venture out to check. Strange that it rained with the temperature almost at 0°C.

The weather didn’t stop our resident flock of sparrows tucking into their bird seed as soon as it went out onto the bird table. They were even prepared to share the space with one of our regular collared doves.

  1. I bet the birds are thankful for the food in this weather. We had snow again yesterday but there's no more forecast for the time being now. I hope it all melts soon.
