Firecrest at Murrow

Marie Barton has the most wonderful garden, a true oasis in the fens. In addition to the superb new wildlife pond, the garden has plentiful trees and all sorts of other goodies going on and is always full of birds. Close followers of the blog with good memories may remember I went to twitch a Pied Flycatcher there last autumn.
Today, she had a male Firecrest and I rudely invited myself along for a look. This was my fourth ever Peterborough Firecrest and easily the best views I have had.
Firecrest is one of those magical little birds which just ooze charisma. And this little fellow was a real cracker!
Thanks, Marie.
