TREE SPAR­ROW

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

The lovely, chip­per, dap­per coun­try cousin of the fa­mil­iar House Spar­row is a bird which has un­der­gone a dras­tic de­cline. How­ever, there are still some 200,000 pairs across the coun­try, mainly in Eng­land (though not the south-west), so it is not ex­actly a rare bird, yet. It is lo­calised though, and in many ar­eas takes a bit of lo­cal knowl­edge to find. One place where it is sur­pris­ingly easy to watch Tree Spar­rows in the sum­mer is Bemp­ton Cliffs RSPB, where they ‘chip’ around while you re­lax at the vis­i­tor cen­tre.
