Hedge Sparrow
The Dunnock, also called the Hedge Sparrow though it is not a sparrow but an "accentor", has pretty rich brown markings on its back like a sparrow. It is a common bird but hides and skulks in undergrowth. The female Dunnock (left above/below) is a little more streaky than the male in his breeding plumage, the latter having a plainer grey head and chest (see right above/below).
