Dunnock Portrait

Sorry for the lengthy silence… nothing to worry about, just a combination of factors (including precious little to photograph), plus a reluctance to post unless I am genuinely pleased with the image. Anyway, I am pleased with this photo of a dunnock taken at lunchtime today.

      Thanks Charles! It will still be hit and miss for a while, but I hope to be a little more creative as the weather improves.

    Nice little bird, probably not easy to spot with feathers so in tune with the background colours 🙂

      Darko, I really like dunnocks. They are so plain and unfancy, but very playful and quite bold.
