Wren

It is surprising how common the tiny wren is but it breeds throughout Britain and may have as many as eight youngsters to a brood. It should be unmistakable with its warm-brown barred plumage and erect tail-cocking habit.

The wren has a remarkably loud and clear warbling song for such a small bird. It inhabits a very wide variety of habitats from remote mountain tops and sea cliffs and right into suburban parks and gardens. It is highly insectivorous and will forage through any nook or cranny in a tree or bush and will frequently venture into accessible buildings in the search of flies and spiders.

Wrens will take small mealworms offered on the bird table and will also be attracted by Prosecto Insectivorous Mix, and Golden Chorus. The wren is one of Europe's smallest birds and spends most of its time near the ground in bushes and thickets. They forage in dark, damp places (mainly under hedges) and feed on seeds, insects and spiders. Although they are small they have a loud vibrant distinctive song. Being brown in colour they are approximately 9-10cm long, have a wingspan of 13-17cm and weigh between 8-13gms only.

Their nests are made from balls of leaves and grass and they produce 5 or 6 eggs in 2 broods between April and July.
