Collecting Nesting Materials

 

I have a Pampas Grass in the front garden and every year around this time several varieties of birds come to collect the grass for their nests. It may be a House Sparrow or perhaps a Dunnock, my bird identifications skills are somewhat limited. Taken through a window that is not too clean but it seems to work OK.
