Lester, lovely images of the Dunnock. Quite a story with them. As far as I know they are not found in the states.

Beautiful shots Lester, I don't think that I've ever seen one of those before. Are they common in the UK?

Lovely shot of the Hedge Spuggie Lester, it was a digiscoped image (Andy Bright) of one of these that got me started photographing birds

They are fairly common, the old country name is hedge sparrow, but they are not sparrows and are in the same group as wrens. They are ground feeding birds normally.

They are sweet little birds, we normally have a pair in the garden I always enjoy seeing.
