Description
Also known as hedge accentor. The name 'dunnock' derives from 'dun' (dull brown) and 'ock' (little); or, more familiarly, 'small brown job'. In reality, it is not related to sparrows. When spring comes knocking, they abandon their shy ways as each female sets out to attract (on average) two males. Photo taken at Marazion Marsh RSPB nature reserve in early spring.
