ID please

I don't know which section this should go into...

But, can anyone ID this for me please?



He(?) has been singing away at the top of a high holly tree all afternoon.

Song is similar to a tree pipit according to Tweet!

It's a huge crop unfortunately so not a high quality image I'm afraid.

Thanks in advance!

It think its a Dunnock http://www.birdguides.com/webzine/article.asp?a=1047

We have a resident pair in our garden and they are fairly common out and about. Their song is always a pleasure to hear

Thanks Brian. I think you're right. The song is wonderful for such an unassuming bird.

Definitely a Dunnock, I wish Tree Pipits were as common as this bird is. One of my favourite little birds, one sings his sweet song opposite my back door all day long. The song is actually very different to the pipit's when you hear them both together and the latter does most of it's singing on the wing.
