Sparrows Bathing

My son Rob and a friend dug out the hole and put this pond in for me last year. We tried quite a few fish in it, but after a while they all died. Not sure why, but this year and needing to be thrifty we decided not to bother with fish. But it has turned out to be a little centre for wild life. The squirrels, birds and yes my own cat Tuppy, all like to take a drink from the pond. The other morning there had to be at least 15 sparrows taking a feathery dip, also a squirrel who came along and then decided to have fun, by chasing them off, it was lovely to see. I didn't catch them all there in my photos and my photos aren't too good, taken from a distance and through a window.
