Goldcrest




A Goldcrest in a small pine tree next to the river this afternoon. I had a short break in the middle of the day and went out to check if the Hoopoe was still around from yesterday. It wasn't but as I was watching a female Red Flanked Bluetail in a tiny vegetable garden I noticed this lone Goldcrest just a few feet away.

The smallest bird in the UK is also the smallest bird in Japan......................

  3. Very grey on the head - local race? Great work though - I know how restless and quick they are!

  4. Like the lighting in these shots. The shadows and sunlight really enhance the colours of the bird.
