Dear All,

I have contacted Richard Shears, the journalist who reported the Blue Sparrow. The sparrow was seen in Leichardt in Sydney. I don't know Richard's exact address, but he lives near some "large parks". The most likely location would be probably Leichardt Park and the grounds of Rozelle Hospital or Pioneers Memorial Park.. His wife also saw the bird and says she saw another, paler sparrow (?female). Richard is in Europe at the moment, but will be back in a couple of weeks and will be keeping his eyes open for the sparrow. I have put Richard Prum and Rhichard Shears in contact with each other.

I will be watching developments with interest. I might even duck down to Leichardt and have a snoop.
