Winner Winner Sparrow Dinner!

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload. Special thanks to Dave (DaveNewbury), Fred (Badgerfred), Jeff (kojack), Debs (frogs123) and Jenn (taggart) for your smashing User Awards.

I think this is the best photo I have ever taken. I entered it into the RSPB 2020 Calendar Competition and I won! How amazing is that. I could not tell anyone until the RSPB had announced the winners which they did today. Hope you like it.

Have a great evening.
