It’s not me hunting for insects, but a Wren in the garden – standing near the kitchen window, I suddenly spotted this little bird sitting in one of the shrubs in the garden.
Wrens don’t eat “human food”, preferring insects and aphids, so by the time little little one has finished, I think that shrub should be free of greenfly at least!
I could hear the short staccato shouting of a small bird in the garden. Thinking it was the female blackcap again I went to get my camera, only to discover it was actually a wren sitting on the garden fence.
I’m impressed with the way the wren was able to preen its feathers and shout at the same time – that must take a lot of skill!
Suddenly the wren flew off, spooked by something on the other side of the fence. It didn’t go far though – it flew over to the opposite side of the garden, and continued shouting and preening for another few minutes before finally flying away.
