Hello there

I feel a bit of a fool for asking for help on this identification, but the automatic identifiers of RSPB etc have drawn a blank. The birds were about the size of a Robin, sighted in a London garden.  One in late April (on the feeder), the other late June (having what looks like a bad feather day).

Thanks in advance for your help

Dunnock I think.

Definitely a Dunnock, commonly called a hedge sparrow..  The upper on appears to be a juvenile - not formed beak and the lower an adult.
