A Bit of History

The diminutive Dunnock tries and largely succeeds in outshining all the other birds with its song. Often called the Irish nightingale, its melodies after dark were traditionally believed to reflect lost voices in the spirit world.

In olden times the Dunnock’s blue-green eggs were regarded as charms against witches spells when strung out along the hob and were especially good for keeping witches and spirits from coming down the chimney.
