Sparrow Roost

The House sparrow number in my garden have been steadily growing over the past couple of years.

Every evening about 12 of them roost in a laurel tree in my garden.

I thought I would do something different and record their chattering and gossiping.

  1. Well captured. Where i used to live there was a small flock of house sparrows. It was wonderful to walk up to the bush they were hanging out in. When I go to a certain point of nearness they stopped, the bush fell silent. When I got to the same distance on the other side, they picked up their ‘conversation’ where they left off. Delightful to hear them again.

  2. Nice Alex! The sound of my childhood, sadly less audible these days (fewer sparrows, my hearing is still ok!)
