Barn Birds ???

A walk around the Little Linford Wood area today.
Very few butterflies around which was I was primarily looking for but did see some birds that were seemingly not in their correct habitat.

Tree Sparrows are rare enough these days but this colony choose to nest in an old derelict barn.

 
Another bird that seemed to like a barn was this Red-legged Partridge. Not nesting but using it for a lookout post.                                                                                                                   
 

 
Ragged Robin is one of my favourite flowers and there are plenty here
