Tuesday's random fun fact...

Do you know the difference between your dunnock and your house sparrow? Look for a dunnock’s grey face and chest. Dunnocks are also more commonly seen on the ground, skulking on their own, unlike the more gregarious house sparrows, which hang about in groups. Keep a careful eye out for the dunnock's grey-brown plumage, grey face and chest and narrow beak. These are shy birds that shuffle and hop, eating on the ground, rather than feeders.

Why do hummingbirds hum? 

Because they don’t know the words.
