Dunnock  | Joel Walley Wildlife Photography
The Dunnock (Prunella modularis) were once described by the victorian ornithologist, the Reverend Frederick Orpen Morris as a species that man should emulate as they were unobtrusive, quiet and retiring - the opposite of the Dunnocks true nature. Dunnocks are polyandrous, and it is not uncommon for chicks from the same brood to have different fathers.
