"The Swaffham Sparrow"


  1. Hi Jim.
    I think the yellow forehead on the sparrow is caused by yellow pollen rubbing off when they feed. I have seen a similar thing on Starlings, and I think it has occasionally been mentioned for other garden species.

    1. Nice one James. I think you're correct though it's something I have not seen before. Thanks, Jim
