Goldcrest

A brief and unexpected visitor today. In 24 years this is only the second sighting I have had of this bird close to my home. I had gone out, armed with camera looking for the long tailed tit that had just been around when movement in the trees drew my attention to this little character. It flitted about so quickly in the dense, dark foliage along side the stream it was only possile to get a couple of swift shots before it had gone out of range.

Quick, before I’m gone
