Is the #Goldcrest a bit glum?

Leave a comment

My walk today was bright and dry and full of birdsong.  The usual suspects showed up  robins, blackbird, blue and coal tits.

Along with crows and wood pigeon, and a crow’s encounter with a low flying buzzard dipping sideways to shake the crow off his tail. Our local canal has a resident heron who is very used to people walking the tow path; he continued his fishing activities unfazed in this morning’s sunshine. 

One of my favourite bird calls is that of the Goldcrest.  They are very small, our smallest european bird, and usually situated very high up in conifer trees.  You might see them from below if you are lucky, but then only their olive coloured underside, and unless you learn their call you would not know that they were there at all.   Their call is high pitched, jingling sound,  listen here to find out what it sounds like…..

The goldcrest is a tiny cute little bird that looks slightly glum don’t you think?
