Hedge Accentor

Prunella modularis (Linnaeus, 1758)

The Dunnock (Prunella modularis) is a small passerine bird found throughout temperate Europe and into Asia. It is by far the most widespread member of the accentor family, which otherwise consists of mountain species. It is sometimes called the Hedge Accentor, Hedge Sparrow or Hedge Warbler. The name "dunnock" comes from the Ancient British *dunnākos, meaning "little brown one". Source: Wikipedia
