    Stunning picture.
    I'm afraid a decent picture of a Wren has alluded me so far.
    I'll get one one day :)

    Wow, how close were you to get that? I have one that hops about in the hedge outside my window and I have spent ages trying to capture it. This is the best I have got through the glass. They are such beautiful little birds. P1020788.JPG

    Out walking this morning and spotted this little one hopping about in the ivy growing up the tree. Stood for ages trying to get a shot. It's so frustrating when it's right in front of you and you can't focus on it, or a twig gets in the way! P1030076.JPG P1030077.JPG

    it is,very frustrating, I have had that trouble too, the lens goes back and forth trying to focus, but rarely gets to focus on the subject, I recently tried to get a pic of Greater Spotted Woodpecker and took seven shots and failed on all for same reason .Ill put some pics on of the nesting wren ,which made things easy,

    I've not seen a wren nest in a box before. I know they will all pile into a bird box on cold winter nights though. I think someone counted 36 wrens going into a box one cold evening.

    You certainly got lucky there. Great pictures.

    Apparently the male bird will build several nests and escort the female round of her to select the one she likes, so it was all down to Jenny that she nested there.

    Mind you, male wrens are not always monogamous and he could easily have another 'wife' elsewhere. I'm just staggered by the amount of nests he must have to build each year

    I also find Gold Crests rather frustrating too :)
