The shy Dunnock can be seen hopping about under hedges as its other name, ‘Hedge Sparrow’, suggests (though it’s not actually a sparrow). It inhabits gardens, woodlands, hedgerows and parks.

    I used to have loads of these and no house sparrows. Here we have a quarrel of sparrows and no dunnocks. Lovely photo. How did you get him to sit still?

  4. Beautiful pics Jude. What a perfect, tiny little thing. The hopping reminds me of our Cape Robin Chat but this little ball of feathers of yours is much smaller.

Have something to say?
