Throwback Thursday

Mating House Sparrows.

Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the late 1980s.

I was photographing garden birds using a shed as a hide. I had buried an offcut of butyl rubber pond liner in the ground to create a natural looking puddle so the birds could drink and bath in the water.

I spotted this pair of House Sparrows mating in the hedge and swung the camera around to get shots of the behaviour. The photo was published in BBC Wildlife magazine some time later.

I say! 😀

As it happens so quickly with birds, I’m amazed you managed to get your camera trained on them quick enough to get in a shot other than them lighting up a cigarette 😀
