Goldcrest - Regulus regulus

Many assume that the Wren is our smallest bird but this diminutive honour goes the Goldcrest, which is just three and a half inches long. In spit of its size, this bird is virtually fearless of man and worth encouraging into your garden.

It slings a hammock of moss and cobwebs high in a suitable conifer and produces two broods between April and June. Seven to ten eggs are laid, which are incubated by the female in about fifteen days, fledging follows in a further twenty one.
