Dunnock (Prunella modularis)

Inhabits any well vegetated areas with scrub, brambles and hedges. Look in deciduous woodland, farmland edges, parks and gardens. Keeps largely on the ground and often close to cover.

  2. The Dunnock is a pretty bird. It could pass as one of our Sparrows. Great shots, enjoy your day!

  3. Wonderful little bird. Seems to me when I visit Europe that this species is nowhere near as common as it used to be.

  4. Wonderful, it's good to see a photograph as whenever I see them they are messing about under Broom or Gorse and all I get are pictures of twigs.

  12. I think birds are calmed into posing so nicely when they know it's you on the other end of the lens.

  29. I confess that I've never heard of a Dunnock before. Is it a type of sparrow?
