Delighted to serve you, sparrow friend. Your presence has brought a little joy into our kitchen. Not so colourful as their colleagues the blue tits, the chaffinches or gold finches, nor so cheeky as our cock robin, nevertheless the chatter of the hedge sparrows and the dunnocks, when the wild bird seed is laid out for them, is very welcome.
It’s only a couple of investigatory steps, now, to check out the nest entrance behind the bar, and soon you can be serving tasty snacks to your own offspring.
Not entirely confident that you’ll be able to change the barrels though.
