Dunnock On A Rock…

Years ago I knew some people who played music and were also keen bird-watchers.   They formed a band called ‘The Dunnock’s Dangling Donger Band’.  I asked why that name and was told that, basically, it’s because Dunnocks are such randy little beasts…


Mike saw a pair of Dunnocks on the terrace in front of our house taking part in the activity shown in the drawing in the above article.  By the time he got his camera they’d stopped, but the male was perched on a nearby rock – looking pleased with himself….

It’s all happening round the hedgehog’s dish!


Here’s one I made earlier…. https://theorkneynews.scot/2020/11/19/downing-street-think-about-it/
