  • Name that bird in one

    I am really rubbish at deciding which sparrow I have, tree, house or Dunnock. I expect I am the Big Birdwatch nightmare contributor

    I keep seeing this/these bird/s at my hedge feeder and thought they might be Dunnock? Any thoughts?

    It's a Female House Sparrow.
    Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds and a Giant Puffball! https://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gr...lies/smile.gif

      Bit disappointed as I am sure there are dunnocks out there but happy the sparrows have found the nesting material I put out.

            Thanks, Nicos. And for the other thread. Looks like we have dunnocks. Lots...
            Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

              Oooh thanks for the picture peanut that is a lot clearer than the leaflet from the RSPB. Maybe I don't have any dunnocks visiting then as I didn't think they had that many markings, birds I have seen are mostly beigy brown with a few streaks over the wings.
