House Sparrow

Click Me
Location: Pagham Harbour NR Date: 19/09/2015
Scientific Name: Passer domesticus Pic By: Jen
Family: Sparrow Size: 14cm
ISO: 500 Gender: U
Equipment: Canon EOS 7D 420/1 Wingspan: 21cm
Description: Noisy and gregarious, these cheerful exploiters of man's rubbish and wastefulness, have managed to colonise most of the world. The ultimate avian opportunist perhaps. Monitoring suggests a severe decline in the UK house sparrow population, recently estimated as dropping by 71 per cent between 1977 and 2008 with substantial declines in both rural and urban populations. Whilst the decline in England continues, Breeding Bird Survey data indicate recent population increases in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Equipment: Canon EOS 7D Mark II 400/1 Wingspan: 24cm
Description: Sparrow-sized but slim and with a long, deeply notched tail, the male has a black head, white collar and a drooping moustache. Females and winter males have a streaked head. In flight the tail looks black with broad, white edges.

Family: Finch Size: 12cm
ISO: 1250 Gender: U
Equipment: Canon EOS 7D 400/1 Wingspan: 22cm
Description: This tiny finch only slightly bigger than a blue tit is streaky and brown with patches of red on its head and sometimes its breast. They like to hang upside down to feed in trees.

European Goldfinch Juvenile

Click Me
Location: Goldcliff NR Date: 18/08/2013
Scientific Name: Carduelis carduelis Pic By: Mark
Family: Finch Size: 12cm
ISO: 400 Gender: U
Equipment: Canon EOS 7D 400/1 Wingspan: 24cm
Description: A highly coloured finch with a bright red face and yellow wing patch. Sociable, often breeding in loose colonies, they have a delightful liquid twittering song and call. Their long fine beaks allow them to extract otherwise inaccessible seeds from thistles and teasels. Increasingly they are visiting birdtables and feeders. In winter many UK goldfinches migrate as far south as Spain.
