Default Goldcrest

My best garden tick since the Black Redstart in 2014 - a Goldcrest flitting between the Damson and Hawthorn trees in the garden this morning.

Chuffed for you Ian! A super little bird to catch up with at anytime but even better in your own garden! A couple of years since one was in my garden!

Enjoy your Goldcrest.

Lovely little bird, one of my favourites, not least because it took me years to find my first one

Nice garden tick. Up there with the Barn Owl that was hunting close to the bottom of our garden yesterday evening. Only spotted it because went out to admire the sunset.

In my book, if I can see it from the garden it counts as a garden tick
