Dunnock

By nglen
This was take last weekend on a very damp dull morning in the garden. I have now got a small wooden hide.

Dunnock ( Prunella modularis ) Length 14 - 15 cm.
Common but unobtrusive resident breeding bird in Britain and Ireland, except on Shetland. Adult has a chestnut brown back , blue grey underparts, streaked flanks and needle bill. Feeds quietly on ground searching for insects and seeds. Most noticeable in early spring when male sings lively.Favours woods , hedgerows and gardens.
