Streptopelia turtur.

Given the massive decline in the population of these delicate doves in the UK, it was fabulous to see and hear these frequently at various sites around the village.

My second trip to the small village of Tiszaalpar in rural Hungary to visit the fantastic hides and locations run by my friend Istvan Bartol.

About eight years ago I worked with a number of local farmers to provide measures for farmland birds on arable land. As a result the local landscape is now peppered with blocks of winter cereal stubbles, sacrificial winters seed crops, wide grass and floristic margins and hedgerows that are allowed to grow up for more than a year without getting hammered back down with a flail !

This work was primarily to promote the conservation of declining farmland birds, yellowhammers, tree sparrows, skylarks, grey partridge and the like.

We’ve seen some positive results on a local scale with both yellowhammer and tree sparrows showing marked population growth and expansion into new areas.

Tree Sparrow used to be a very rare bird, it took me years to see one when I first started birding here, but now they have colonised and are nesting in many areas. This year they nested at Low Newton for the first time occupying holes in house roofs alongside the House Sparrows.

This bird was carrying food to a nest at Low Newton boat yard, not a place I ever thought I would see a Tree Sparrow ten years ago !
