Little Hedge Sparrow

Dunnock (Prunella modularis) juvenile

Of course this is also more commonly known as the Dunnock. This is a little juvenile who has been paying me a visit for the past few days. He or she appears very inquisitve, and it has often flew near me when I have been out in the garden.Here it has landed nearby on a garden chair.

  1. I love when your photos show me what can be done with a lens that I have. Clearly, it’s not the lens that’s at fault for imperfect photos — that’s actually encouraging, because I can improve!

    • Thank you for your lovely comment. I find this can be quite a versatile lens, but it is especially good for photographing wildlife from a reasonable distance. I was lucky here because this little one came fairly near me for these photos. I think photographers are always on a learning curve to a degree, I know I am πŸ™‚

  2. Great photos! I only used a regular, automatic camera, couldn’t produce the kind of shots you did. I have frequent visits of grey jay, did one post on Love Birds. They made a nest, but…sad ending. Got a shot of them mating but didn’t post. I also have robins making nest. Last year, they lost their eggs. This year was a success. I think my post called it Three to Four – three eggs to four birds.
