[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Near Caerfai Bay in southern Wales I found this bird and in my opinion it's dunnock (prunella modularis).
It was somewhat nervous, constantly flicking its tail and wings. The other names are : Hedge Accentor, Hedge Sparrow or Hedge Warbler. It is a bird of woodland, shrub and gardens and is insectivore (beetles, ants, spiders). The female lays and incubates 3-5 bright blue eggs. It is by far most widespread member of the accentor family, which otherwise consists of mountain species.
