A free day, off work, and a little undecided where to go. I was mulling over the possibilities this morning whilst taking the dog for his morning jaunt, when a gang of noisy House Sparrows swooped just above my head, and landed with all the precision of an aircraft pilot, into some thick bushes. Half a dozen lusty males in pursuit of a female. Quite amazing how they land so effortlessly, and not in a jumbled heap. I stopped to watch and listen for a while, but Jim was getting impatient, so we carried on our way.

Amazing how such little things that a lot of people don’t even notice, can really lift your spirits and make you glad to be alive.

  1. My experience has taught me that these little things are the most important ones that lift our spirits and make us happy and if we let them enrich us, our life will never be empty. Your photos of the House Sparrows are very nice!
