Did you know there is more than one type of Sparrow? But they all love hedges and one of the strongholds for the less familiar type, the Tree Sparrow or as it is nick named Spuggies, is at RSPB Old Moor near Barnsley, Yorkshire . It’s a popular nature reserve which needed its car park expanding, which would then limit some of the existing hedges used by the Spuggies.
Stepping in, CEMEX Asphalt helped with some good old-fashioned hard work, together with and getting some plants for a new hedgerow. With lots of grafting during the day, a new hedgerow was established which hopefully will soon be enjoyed the Spuggies.
Keep your eyes open for this bird – it has a chocolate brown cap and black beauty spot on their cheeks. It has more or less vanished around much of Southern England and they love areas with diverse, mature hedges surrounded by damp land, usually on the edge of farmland.
