Goldcrest (Regulus regulus0
Out in the garden yesterday I heard a high pitched bird call from afar, it was getting closer by the second. Just then two wee birds zoomed past my head. They decided to dart in and around my small acer tree. Obviously looking for insects. I managed to tip toe back into the house to get my camera. Luckily it's kept on the shelf by the back door.
I had no idea what I was looking at. All I knew was that they weren't wrens because of the yellow stripe on their heads. I'll get an ID later I told myself. Out of about 20 pictures, sadly one one was 'almost' in focus.
They eventually flew off but did come back later and sat on the rowan tree for a short while. It would be nice if they visited me again. My eyes are peeled!
