There are sadly very few places where you can reliably find tree sparrows these days, following a catastrophic decline in numbers in the last 30-40 years. Fortunately the West Midland Bird Club reserve at Belvide Reservoir supports a small population that can be seen regularly visiting feeders, affording a great view from the comfort of a hide.
The lovely chestnut brown cap and cheek spots make them easy to differentiate from their more familiar cousin the house sparrow.
On a dull day, I got lucky when a gap in the clouds bringing a brief moment of sunshine coincided with this beautiful bird perching on a twig close to the hide we were sitting in.
