A confiding Dunnock

Thank you for your very quick answer. I thought it was a sparrow at first , but it didn’t seem to be hopping about like one. Then I took a closer look. Its exciting to find something different in the garden.

it is sometimes known as a hedge sparrow Jennifer but apparently not related to the sparrow at all......They are a lovelly little bird with a fantastic song.......they scurry around often looking like a little mouse....

Hi Jennifer, I reckon the Dunnock is the most frequent visitor to my garden, but I still stop what I'm doing to watch them. They're not a loud, in yer face, brightly coloured species - but they are interesting characters. Both sexes may have two or more partners and you'll often see three or more of them chasing around the shrubbery!
