    I'm just a novice Keith. I use a Canon 1000D basic dslr. I used to have a 55-250 telephoto, 18-55 standard telephoto, 75-300 telephoto and the 200 std. telephoto lens. Now only the 50 mm prime lens remains. I would like to concentrate on portraits. But my hobby and job keeps me terribly busy.

    Cheers,

    Karthik

    We have not seen a Sparrow for many years yet about 2klm away at the shopping centres particularly the coffee shops they are so tame they will take food of the table you are sitting at. In one supermarket they flew in every morning as soon as the doors opened then went to where the bird seed was kept and if no seeds around they wold peck a hole in the plastic bag then make a mess every where.

    Thanks Ev.


    Actually, here in India, much of the wildlife is disappearing rapidly due to urbanisation. Luckily, we are put up at a place where there isn't much "development". So, I can regularly spot some birds like sparrows and robin.

    Cheers,

    Here in Europe and especially in Germany the sparrows become less and less.
    In comparison to 1970 we have only half of those cheeky little guys meanwhile :(

    It's worldwide the same Keith:

    Sparrows are synanthropic species:
    They have less room for breeding from year to year, even in the cities. The intensification of agriculture increases: Every little space is used by the farmer in the landscape and they use much too much pesticides.
    They do no more find enough food in the villages: People do rarely keep own animals in the gardens on the country side, like hens, doves, etc... We also have much more exotic or doubled flowers without seeds in our gardens than in former times.

    Even the asphalt ways everywhere are bad, sparrows need their sand baths to keep their feathering healthy. I have a wide dish with sand for the birds in my garden...

    Kind regards
    Ev

    This could be the reason they are mainly down the shopping strip as the beach is just across the road.
