Sitting a few feet away from me yesterday morning, on a hedge adjoining rough farmland was a small 'sparrow', with a fine beak.  It gave a tiny two note, slightly hoarse whistle.  We regarded each other for several minutes, and it 'replied' as I whistled.  When I changed to a three note whistle, it replied with three notes. It moved along the hedge, I followed, and we continued our conversation.  Eventually it flew off with a light bounding flight. Apologies if I am asking the obvious.
