Counting sparrows

I've been taking part in the British Trust for Ornithology's Garden Bird Watch for well over a year now, and one thing I often have difficulty with is counting the number of house sparrows we have.  We've put up several nest boxes for them, and they often feed at one of our bird feeders, but once there are more than about 10 of them, it's really hard to count them as they flit between the hedge and the feeder.  See you you get on.  I think there are eight sparrows in this movie clip.
