I wonder what David Attenborough would say. He writes of welcoming wildlife into urban spaces. We make such destructive inroads into their habitat. And many of us delight in a wildlife experience in town. That's the joy of this week's waxwing feasting on rowan berries beside ranks of parked cars. Let's have tree planting in urban spaces. More trees, not fewer trees. Unsightly and unhygenic droppings from the wagtail roost are given as a reason for taking out the trees. Walk town in the early morning before the street cleaners are out and the evidence of mess that hits you isn't bird droppings.
In spring and summer, swifts screeching over the house tops is always a delight.
