It’s best to keep your distance when there’s a red squirrel nearby. Given the chance, a squirrel will take birds.
With bramblings (bjørkefink), tree and house sparrows (pilfink og gråspurv).
They’ve been absent for some time apart from a single bird occasionally. A flock of 6 birds were in the garden most of yesterday:
1) …with Yellowhammers (gulspurv), tree sparrows (pilfink) and house sparrow (gråspurv)
2) ……with greenfinch and yellowhammers (grønnfink og gulspurv)
3) …with a nuthatch doing neck exercises (taken from a film)
Here’s more evidence for the importance of having sparrows in our gardens! In the video can be seen both house and tree sparrows (gråspurv og pilfink) feeding on diamond back moth (kålmøll) larvae from kale leaves!
