Dunnock

The Dunnock used to be know as the Hedge Sparrow. A delightful little bird they hop around the base of our bird feeders, in and out of the plants looking for food. One of their favourite things is just sitting on the hedge. You might think they are just a little brown bird but as you can see they are beautifully marked.
Do hope that you got involved with the RSPB's feed the birds weekend, we did, although they all flitted in and out so fast that we decided this was one of the best of our photos. We also had a "buzz" from the Sparrowhawk this afternoon although we don't think it was successful.
