Did you know there is more than one type of Sparrow? They all love hedges and one of the less familiar type, the Tree Sparrow or Spuggies, is to be found at RSPB Old Moor near Barnsley in Yorkshire.
The reserve is a popular one and the existing car park was in need of expansion which would limit some of the existing hedges used by the Spuggies. The Asphalt team helped create part of a new car park and a new hedgerow soon to be enjoyed by the Spuggies.
Keep your eyes open for this rare bird - it has a chocolate brown cap and black beauty spot on its cheek. It has more or less vanished around much of Southern England but is around areas with diverse, mature hedges surrounded by damp land, usually on the edge of farmland.
