Dunnock

Dunnock standing on a rock at Bornem, Belgium.

Fairly common to common but unobtrusive, found in various open scrubby and wooded habitats, from low bleak heathland to parks, gardens, and farmland with hedges. Usually seen as singles or pairs, hopping on lawns or paths with a distinctive shuffling gait. Appearance rather drab but distinctive: note slender, thrush-like bill (not stout, like superficially similar sparrows), blue-grey head sides, streaked back. Undistinguished, slightly tinny, the rambling song has an even, warbled cadence; distinctive when learned.
