Description

I only found the nest because I became aware of the alarm calls of the male ? I was actually photographing a weevil in the long grass only 3 ft from the nest. When I saw the bird responsible for the calls I knew what sort of nest to look for. The nest is 18 inches above the ground in a scotch broom bush.

Description from Wikipedia

The dunnock (Prunella modularis) is a small passerine bird, or perching 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. Other common names of the dunnock include, the Hedge Accentor, Hedge Sparrow, or Hedge Warbler. The name "dunnock" comes from the Ancient British *dunnākos, meaning "little brown one."
