Where Have The Birds Gone?
When we moved here, we were indundated with sparrows, starlings and crows. Over they years they have all but disappeared. As they disappeared, we had different birds appearing; nightingales, kingfishers, jays, woodpeckers and a whole host os smaller birds; ****, finches, buntings etc. Now all we have are the occasional pair of wood pigeons and a pair of magpies. Not a robin or blackbird in sight. We have started seeing small groups of parakeets and wondered if they could have any relevance?
