    • Thank you Amelia. I realise that these very common ducks can be seen almost anywhere in the world, but until I looked more closely [male mallards next] I’d never noticed, for example, how they fan their tails as (1) an anchor and (b) a rudder. Since I started all this bird stuff, I’ve even found some beauty in sparrows! RH

      • Quote “even”! – sparrows are one of my favourite birds! I like them because they are cheeky. The sparrows in St James’ Park in London used to share your table and sandwiches with you.

  1. We have none in London (my theory is light pollution); but in Dorset we are lucky – we have a perpetual colony under the eaves, and they nest individually in holes in the stonework passim. We don’t make them sandwiches, though.
