Jade Goody? Sorry ...

Every source that Google can find says it's the house sparrow, which has overtaken the starling in the last few years.

Did we say it was the wren?

Are you sure we said that Jameslouised?

Can you give me a clue as to when we said it? If I can find out when, I should be able to find our source. We need more info to refute these claims.

As the Scottish say:

Hmm, I fear that we did.

QIBOGI, p 159 states that "the wren is Britain's commonest wild bird".

The QI book, this time it's page 159 again

Since the house sparrow is in terminal decline atm that doesn't surprise me. Then again I don't see a huge number of wrens either. They are quite small though.

I know a bird called Wren who is both wild and very common.

Loads of pesky seagulls around here also. Even tried getting a Falcon (or another similar Bird of Prey) to chase them away, but the Seagulls cheated and teamed up on the lonesome BOP
