The number of House Sparrows suffered a huge reduction, particularly in large urban areas and 10 years ago we hardly had any around in the garden, but hey are now doing rather better.
Goldfinches numbers seem to be going from strength to strength.
When I first put up the mesh feeder it attracted very little attention but now it is one of the first to be emptied and often is crowded with several species.
A strange winter, very little really cold weather and Hebe in flower during January seems rather odd.
