HE IS BEAUTIFUL! We have lots of Dunnocks this year - for some reason, lovely arent they - he looks like a miniature owl. :-)

They are getting so well trained here Flower our food bill for these birds just keeps growing ..

Everything seems to be bursting a pace this year Dawn we ve really had 2 wet summers wonder if a sign of some lovely weather and nature playing catch up ?

Many of these birds able to have 2 or more broods a year so in a good year they may stock up the breeding pool ?

Sounds logical BB. To be honest, the plants in my garden have never looked so good for years. The plum and apple trees are loaded, the gunneras are massive - weird but then again we usually get late frosts which put everything back for weeks but not this year :-)))) Let's hope nature is playing catch up and we gets lots my baby birds in the coming months.

Awww he's soooo cute! We had baby Dunnocks this year that have fledged-fingers crossed for another brood. You get so many animals in your garden I'm very envious!

I think that they are also known as Hedge Accentors too. Lovely shot.

Thanks Kimi .. yes quite right Toto can only get so much info on such a small label.lol

For some reason they seem to drive the robins nuts whether its food nesting sites they seem such inoffensive little birds to us .

I think that they are wonderful little birds and although I love them all, robins do have a bit of a reputation for aggresion, don't they!
