We have quite a few Dunnocks around the garden and none of them are particularly on the shy, skulking side. They like to perch on tops of shrubs and posts and strut their stuff and explore through the undergrowfff
Is this my best side?
Or do you prefer me this way
Well, well which wayyyyy
How about looking cute up here?
look what's down here
oh what is it
this smells nice down here
check surroundings, look up look down...
and jump, wheeeeeee
watch that thorny stem and off...
All in the day of Derek The Dunnock.

Lot to learn
Always got a soft spot for Dunnocks who will never be called LBJ's in my book ! Lovely photo set Tony, they do have beautiful eyes and plumage. Derek (or Denise !) certainly has a pretty garden territory to explore in search for insects.
