It's the first time I was able to photograph a Dunnock. I'd appreciate your CCs.

Nice shot Mike and well done on bagging a Dunnock. You have managed to clean that up better than I would have thought possible although I would be tempted to remove the bright white bloom at the bottom as it draws the eye a bit.

Thanks Tony. It’s the 1st spring I’ve seen it. Mr and Mrs Dunnock are zipping across the garden and over the fences all day. I’m working on another shot which shows off the feather details on the head and face.

No
Dunnock looks similar to our Sparrow, but maybe larger?
All lovely images.
Good to see the entire bird in focus with that f6.3
Personally, I find the Original image very pleasing with the dunnock nicely framed by the BG branches.
The clean versions are also wonderful, they isolate the Bird only, no distraction.
Bokeh is luscious and creamy.
Lovely work all around.

Thanks! I get your point about the 1st image: puts the bird in its environment.

Yes having fun indeed!
