Could be Cyclamen repandum. Would be the right time of year according to one of my books

I'm not too sure if it is a Persicum. I had some in containers from the garden centre all over Autumn and Winter and they were wonderful

Problem is they werent labelled but the ones in the photo look exactly the same as the ones I had

Persicum arent fully hardy, they are usually sold as houseplants I believe.

Hi all does anyone have an idea of what this hedge is?

It's surrounded my garden since the house was built, around 60 years ago or so

The flowers are cream in colour when they appear shortly

Definitely Dunnocks

Spotted the pink legs

I can see them taking some of the suet treats into the hedge so I think they are safe from the Magpie Intruder

A small brown and grey bird. Quiet and unobtrusive, it is often seen on its own, creeping along the edge of a flower bed or near to a bush, moving with a rather nervous, shuffling gait, often flicking its wings as it goes.

That is what the RSPB says of a Dunnock. Funnily enough the ones in my garden do this!

I'll keep an eye out for the pink legs.

and I had to lol at the Swinger thing :P

I'm beginning to think that I have Dunnocks and not Sparrows. Just checked the song and sounds like and looks more Dunnocks.

Had to chase a Magpie away from where they are nesting 

Luckily the hedge is so thorny and I think the Magpie is a bit big. Hopefully he didnt get in to the nestlings
