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.
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.
