    A red gape?

    This appears to be a young Dunnock, but I've little experience with seeing fledgings. This one appears to have a red gape - I wonder if that is normal for them.

    Feeders don't interest him....

    .... still likes to eat though! Dunnocks seems to prefer eating on the ground, this one was foraging around underneath the feeders, picking up what everyone else had dropped (including me!)

    I don't often manage to catch the Dunnock, so delighted when one pops onto the shed roof and stays long enough for a picture. The Chaffinch seemed to be a bit surprised to see him too. TTTW

    A Dunnock had replaced the Robin on top of the gate post. The light wasn't so good though and it was still through the windscreen, sorry for the poor image.

    First it was the top of the head, then gradually more and more of him came into view as he walked up the bank from the other side of the crash barrier. Finally coming into full view on the grass verge. Handsome birds these Dunnocks, aren't they.

    Found my own food

    ... so let's hope that darn Robin stays away!! I'd also put some feed on the ground on the other side of the road. There's often a Dunnock hiding in the bushes there. Incidentally, this picture started off very dark, but with the aid of something I messed about with in FastStone I managed to...
