This ‘Dave’ Dunnock has been faithfully turning up in the garden all year long.
He’s a little ‘brown job’ but he’s not a sparrow. He’s not an anything. You might not even notice or know he’s there.
Until you know he’s there.
And then you’ll miss him if he isn’t.
But he always seems to want to be coming back.
To sing his not much of a little song.
Sometimes he flies in his Mississ. And they have a hoppy pop about the wisteria.
Dear ‘Davey’ Dunnock. What a tiny treasure you are.
