What do they look like? 

About the same size as a robin, the Dunnock is dark brown with bold black streaking and a bluish-grey head and neck. Its bill is thin and pointed and its legs are an orangeish brown colour.

What do they eat?

Dunnocks dine on small insects but will be attracted to your bird tables by seeds and fatty offerings such as suet treats and fat balls.

Where do they nest?

These little birds will be found in nests of moss and dead grass in hedgerows and bushes.
