New visitor to ‘odd box’!

I was pleasantly suprised today to see a new visitor to one of the boxes. When I played back my footage of today’s action, I noticed an interesting head looking into the odd box. It spent about five minutes peeping in before finally coming all the way in…. a house sparrow! This may not seem very unusual to many, but I very rarely see house sparrows in my garden… have had a few pairs of tree sparrows, but not house sparrows very often. It is difficult to see on the footage, but I cannot see the cheek patches of the tree sparrow, although its head looked quite brown, rather than grey… probably the reflection from the box.  It came in and out of the box about 5 times, over a fifteen minute period, so I will keep an eye out for it again. I must admit, I would very much like to have something other than blue tits in the boxes! #gallery-276-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-276-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 50%; } #gallery-276-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-276-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */
