A Secret Rendezvous

Dunnocks enjoy (if thats the appropriate word) an interesting social lifestyle.
"menage a trois" is hardly the description for it.
Without going into all the detail here it can be gleaned from many birding sites on the Net.

Suffice to say that the male and female meeting in the images below that I shot recently was unlikely to be the only encounter the Lady had that day or the male for that matter.



An unsuitable male it would appear here as she made off.

  4. Love at low level, I always see Dunnocks at around knee height when I'm out running. But not in such compromising situations!

  8. I love the Dunnocks, I have them in my garden. The song of the Dunnock is quite powerful for a little bird, a little bit like the Wren.

    1. I really like their song Lyn, especially the male singing from the top of a bush.

  9. Interesting information! I thought most birds tend to pick a mate and stick with it, but I guess you do what is needed to keep the species going. Lovely shots of them.

  11. Great shots. I didn't know of this behaviour with Dunnocks, I've been watching them in my back garden and there's been lots of tail trembling and showing off going on!
