Askam Park Sparrow Roost

Present: JAF, KH. 5 February 2010

There has long been a roost of House Sparrows inhabiting a hedge the runs along the back of a small recreational park in Askam-in-Furness. Today we thought we'd give it a try. We caught 4 sparrows, but have learned something from the trial. Birds ringed were:

Blackbird 1; Bullfinch 2; Chaffinch 2; House Sparrow 4.
