Bird of the week - Dunnock

Not quite as promiscuous as the reed bunting featured in a post two weeks ago, but almost.  It is not an easy bird to photograph as it is mostly at the bottom of the hedge under cover.  Fortunately it does pop out into view occasionally. The eye darkens as the bird gets older into a beautiful mahogany.  To listen to the BBC Radio 4 Tweet of the day on dunnock click here.  Read more about the dunnock on BTO Garden Birdwatch here or on BTO BirdFacts here.
