Wren

Hi everyone! Today I am going to post on the wonderful little wren.

The Wren is a tiny, brown bird, which is slimmer, although heavier than the Goldcrest. It is dumpy, has a fine bill and has quite long legs and toes. With a short tail that is normally pricked up, it has a surprisingly loud voice. It is the UK's most commonest breeding bird however it suffers declines in the long, severely cold winters. It is found all across the UK in a wide range of habitats. They can be seen all year round and they have a diet of insects and spiders. There are 8.5 million breeding pairs in the UK. At dawn males sing to stop others from stealing their territories.

I took these at the weekend at Warnham:
