Saw this on 30th Jan, when I look at it I think it's a Dunnock, but when I look again i think that maybe it isn't.
It's quite dark but hopefully someone will be able to work out what it is!
There were also finches around, goldfinches, chaffinches etc.

As this is another bird ID and same place same date I thought I would put it on here
can anyone ID?

It's definitely not a BHG as there is no ear spot

That is a common gull or mew gull :)

Note the small bill and light colouring, an adult with a bit of streaking.

Edit: It slipped my mind that common gulls in winter plumage develop little bits of streaking. Therefore, this bird is an adult.
