The dunnock looks a little like a sparrow but it belongs to a completely different family. It is in fact a song bird and sings the sweetest melodies. It is often seen alone and is a quiet and sensitive bird. They nest in shrubs and small conifers, and only around six feet above the ground.
The snow came today...it was a light fall ....and when it came the whole world seemed to go quiet. As I walked the garden early this morning I could hear the church bells in a neighbouring village. Easter Sunday, it was a lovely way to start my day. The afternoon was spent with family......easter egg hunts.......an easter tea......and lots and lots of laughter. I had a lovely day and I hope that you did to.
