Dunnock

dunnockAmong the flocks of sparrows, the squabbling robins and blackbirds, the starlings and the various tits that regularly visit the bird table, there is usually a dunnock.  It looks a tad like a sparrow, but often much greyer (though not this one) and with a much more slender beak. A dunnock, one dunnock, always seems to be out there, a snapper-up of unconsidered trifles, hopping round the edges of the bed, a most retiring little bird.
