Dunnock, Franklin Gardens, 2012-09-01 002
Description:

Despite the alternative names (Hedge Sparrow, Hedge Accentor), I think most people recognize Dunnock. Hedge Sparrow seems to be on the wane, and Hedge Accentor (despite being the default on iSpot) doesn't seem to have caught on yet, despite its claim to accuracy. Interestingly, the Collins Bird Guide 2009 doesn't mention Hedge Accentor at all.
I don't suppose this one cares what we call it. It was in my garden, and looks like it's in tip-top condition.
