Dunnock do have a sweet little song, which stands out at this time, when many other birds have not really got going yet. However, it is nothing compared to the fluting tones of a Nightingale. The difference would really strike you! Worth remembering that Nightingales are a migrant, as well, and so will still be well south of us at the moment. They don't usually come back until late April/May.
