Matt's Bird Of The Week – House Sparrow

Matt Sewell | 31st July 2009


Something ace for the weekend… thanks to Matt Sewell for this beauty.

There’s something quintessentially British about a House Sparrow. As British as chip butties and bramble picking, they even look like they’re wearing a flat cap for Christ’s sake. When you see them abroad they don’t look right, like they shouldn’t be there. Faded, out of place and a bit sad. Like some leathery Brit that’s been in Ibiza/Thailand/Goa for far, far to long and lost their way. Come home!
