Firecrest

This morning, while standing on the side of the road at the junction of Waites Lane and Fairlight road [way into Fairlight], waiting for a lift, I noticed a small bird moving around in a tiny strip of bramble. Luckily I had my binoculars and it was a lovely Firecrest, apparently finding insects despite the snow.

    • Yes, Firecrests are as you say much rarer but I see odd ones in the Fairlight area each winter, this one showed very well and they are quite unmistakeable !
