Troglodytes troglodytes.......... the beautiful Wren

I had a lovely walk around one of my local woods a couple of days ago.
As I strolled along amongst the trees and ferns I could heard a Wren and kept catching glimpses of it amongst the undergrowth.
For such a tiny little bird they are pretty vocal.
 I settled down with my little video camera on a tripod and waited to see if I could capture a quick clip of this wonderful little bird.


 I ended up with a front row seat as it perched on a branch right in front of me for a good couple of minutes but have trimmed the clip to just one.
 It is one of our smallest birds in the UK and a real favourite of mine.

Sweet footage,Andrew! This Wren reminds me of our Carolina Wrens. They are quite the singers also.:)

Well done Andrew! Wrens are just so cute, we have little blue ones here, the males are stunning but the females are such cute little balls of fluff.

Great video. Your wren looks different from the ones we have our here in Australia but it bobs around and holds its tail in a very similar way.
