Thank you for all you great comments and votes following yesterdays upload.

Todays set were captured a little while ago whilst observing a couple of rather cheek yet clearly hungry House Sparrows enjoying our tender Spinach. My concern is if they get too much Iron in their diet that they won't be able to get off the ground...

I hop that you all have a great day ahead.

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

They obviously think they have a vitamin deficiency, Nathan, and where better to get a top up of iron than a nice juicy patch of spinach, grown especially by some kind human Grin. A great set of captures. Carol

Adorable! I didn't know sparrows eat green stuff.

Mind you, saying that, if the pigeons don't get their share of the bird food they eat my flowers. I've found whole clumps of shamrocks beheaded before now and have had to shoo the pests off my garden on a number of occasions.
