Bird on a Wire

I have only really had an interest in watching birds(and other wildlife) since I took up photography not so long ago, early 2017. But I can remember as a child seeing Sparrows on a regular basis, up and down the street "Spuggies" as we used to call them round here. Sadly now I hardly see any locally, as few in the hedge at the bottom of the street....

THE HEDGE!!! Yes, most gardens aren't actually gardens anymore, they are sterile extensions of our home. Fenced in, turfed or worst paved over and some pretty(non-native) flower that maybe smell nice. Wildlife needs hedges, places to hide and be able to pass from garden to garden, they need food starting at the very bottom of the food chain with native pollen producing plants to attract the insects which in turn will attract the birds.

Basically what I am trying to say is everyone can and needs to help nature, given time it is amazing and can heal. You don't have to go wandering into the middle of nowhere or somewhere exotic. It starts at home.

It is the humble little Sparrow that has made me really notice the impact we are having, what bird/animal is missing from your childhood?

    Lovely photo. I read your description and it's an interesting observation that is true. As I get older, the more I appreciate nature and none more than birds I think. Over the past years my wife and I have tried to make our yard an inviting place for birds and other wildlife. And we have seen a surprising variety of wildlife show up in our yard. Some are not as welcome as others, but that's ok. Anyway, thanks for sharing those thoughts.

      Thanks Mark for taking the time to read my description for this image and great that you invite wildlife into your yard. It is something anyone can do...even if they don't have a yard, you can get window boxes etc. Also appreciate your sharing this image too :)
