I don't know what it is but all these photos of birds on GOY is helping me overcome my phobia of them - well small ones anyway :o)
Mind you I'm still not keen on being too near real ones. lol

Hywel ~
my budgie Crocus is pleased you are now okay with the little birds.
Phobias are very real ! I can't cope with heights !

Yes, that looks like a goldcrest.
Irish, maybe google RSPB goldcrest and see the pictures ?
Well done on catching this one on camera. :o)
