Little birdies!

The weather is about what you'd expect for November, ie grey with occasional downpours, so not really conducive to photography. I've also been busier this week because I managed to acquire a few sessions of teaching at the local college. As I haven't done much face-to-face teaching for over a year and this was a bigger group than I normally teach, I felt really stressed, but the students turned out to be lovely and I hope I didn't bore them! I've also been busy writing the story for the first TMA of the OU Advanced Creative Writing course.

And then I realised that I hadn't taken a photo this week and I needed one for one of the Flickr groups I belong to.

Fortunately, it stopped raining for a while yesterday afternoon and there was a flock of house sparrows twittering in the honeysuckle that grows in our garden fence. They didn't fly off when I stuck my camera through the conservatory window, so I managed to capture this little chap.

House sparrow -- female

Actually, I think it's a chapess, in other words, I think this is a female. I think this one might be an immature male.
