Dunnocks were once commonly known as Hedge Sparrows, but they are not sparrows at all. They are a very common species that can be seen all over the Gainsborough area.

Mercer Wood is a good place to see Dunnocks or hear them singing.  They are also common all along the riverside, at Castle Hill Wood, at Gainsborough Cemetery, and most anywhere else.
