Prunella modularis


Also known as hedge accentor, hedge sparrow, or hedge warbler; this is a sparrow sized, mainly brown and dark-grey bird. It is very discreet, moving fast and in t shade of shrubs, but it's not shy of people


Observed often on periphery of villages (like in this three separate occasions) and in heaths in open countryside close to shores or in marshes.


I believe I often discarded my spottings of dunnock thinking it would be a sparrow, looking at it from a distance quickly moving in shade of shrubs - and this mainly because of its size and general brownish appearance.
