49/365 – House Sparrow

One of the three UK sparrows which has been declining in numbers. When I was young you’d see hundreds of these every day on virtually every street. Modern housing means they don’t have access to the nooks and crannies of older housing for their nest sites. This one was looking a bit worse for wear looking after its brood.
