Remote recording. Starlings, sparrows. Elder, rose, clematis, honeysuckle, ash. The thicket took a long time to establish. It kept getting cut back. G would cut it back from over the fence when we were away. E cut down the ash. It kept growing back. The elder is the framework and the other plants climb over it. After a point people gave up trying to cut it for the time being. Sparrows began to use it, then from this year the starlings began to use it. It gives a thick protective cover against cats and hawks. Adults and juveniles together. Sometimes on the outside, or from the inside of the thicket.
