I think it's a wren too Sticky, their huge voices are totally out of proportion to the size of their wee bodies, they're just so cute! Are you in Edinburgh now, or is this pic an older one?

thank you all, no libet, sadly im back now ~ got back yesterday, and put this photo on, ~ its a beautiful city and i dont normally like cities ~ i could have happily stayed there ~ we had very good weather ~ perhaps that makes a difference? i shall do a blog about it in bit.

this was in a busy park ~ perhaps it was used to people being around ~ may even be used to that cannon they fire from the castle???

Lovely! I'm always amazed at how small they are when I see a wren, but it always makes my day :)

exactly my feeling limpet. it was so tiny but its song seemed to fill a huge area.

Wonderful city Sticki, glad you enjoyed it. Did you get to the Art Gallery at the end of the park? There's a statue in there Im hoping to pinch for my Gazebo..but no one will help me!!
Lovely shot, its relaxed its tail, not often you see them like that.

i didnt go to the art gallery cos i ran out of time and i had been there before but i read in a magazine recently that it has a really good cafe/restaurant which i am very sad to have missed!

30 Apr, 2011

 

Oh, I didnt know about the eatery..fancy me missing that. But I love that statue to bits..will post a pic of it.

yes please

Incredible song, wrens - so much sound from such a tiny piece of fluff with a beak. Don't get them hereabouts.

That's a shame you don't get them, I really like them. Is it too hot for them where you are?

7 Jan, 2012

 

I think it's just the wrong terrain, Sticki - they tend to like gardens, not agricultural land.

7 Jan, 2012

 

im sure they would like your garden if they found it.

7 Jan, 2012

 

Don't forget, Sticki, it's full of cats!

7 Jan, 2012

 

ah, yes, small problem!! i have one here too.
