Jenny Wren .........

One of our smallest and most numerous birds in the United Kingdom the Wren is not the easiest to find out in the open for the purpose of photography. More often heard than seen.

Probably the best opportunities are presented when they perch with cocked tail to sing heir vibrant song, but they will dive for cover at a moments notice if disturbed.

Its fairly unusual to find one in reed beds, a marginal habitat that I understand tends to be used by less successful birds down at the lower end of the pecking order.

  1. Never knew that about the Wren and the one's found near/around Reed beds I wonder if it's the same for those found near river beds. Great shot especially given the habitat
