The Hole in the Wall Gang


This wren is nesting in a hole in the wall in a garden near Cambridge.

At this time of year it must be at least its second brood, which probably explains why the parent is looking a bit dishevelled and anxious. It seems to be collecting very small food items, including ants.

  1. These are excellent shots of a bird that is difficult to get a picture of.

    1. I think it was so knackered from collecting food for its brood that it couldn't be bothered to be evasive!

  2. Brilliant shots. They don't often stay still long enough to get decent photos.

    1. The only other occasion when I've got a passable photo of one of these was of a fledgling - the adults are really lively, aren't they?!

  3. Well done for getting those images! I do love Wrens, they are fast little blighters.
