House sparrow at Maiden Castle

House sparrow at Maiden Castle

The house sparrow is best differentiated from it's cousin the tree sparrow by its black bib which is lacking in the latter. Although, I wouldn't describe it as a "star" of the bird world, there's something about having a hedge full of sparrows nearby and being able to hear the continous (some would say monotonous) chirping coming from within it.
