I had to travel out of the South West to get my first Tree Sparrows but I first saw them at Flitcham in Norfolk. There's a regular colony there.
the second place I saw them was Martin Mere so you cant go wrong there.
For those interested in situations outside of the UK, there's a colony at the North Slob in Co. Wexford. I only discovered that last year when I stopped off there.
Unfortunately I didnt get to see any of the said Tree sparrows.
Lets hope that protective measures help this species out. Like any species on the ropes, they deserve all the help they can get.
