It's a beautiful image but I don't know what it is.

That's a cracking picture you've taken Hardy... it's a Dunnock.

They're usually pretty shy and spend a long of time rootling about underneath hedges, so are hard to see. This one was extremely kind to you LOL.

You can read more about them in our Opus article here: https://www.birdforum.net/opus/Dunnock
 
Thanks to both of you! I found here in the forum that´s a dunnock.
I happened to see it in front of our living room and immediately grabbed my camera
and made a shot through the window. It didn´t notice me luckily.
