WREN

Post by Placido » Sat Apr 20, 2019 8:36 am

Fancy that - we haven't had a proper Wren topic :eek:

Saw what must have been the same one twice today. Both times it had something in its beak and dived headlong into the holly bush which shares space with a clematis, a pyrawotsit and, until yesterday, an unwelcome cherry.
I reckon the wrens are sharing space with the dunnock menage a trois :rolleyes:.

You appear to have an avian soap opera happening in your grounds. Thank goodness this is a family forum and we will be spared the spicier details :nod:

A very sage observation, Jacksparrow. Most perspicacious of you. There's a book in this ........ :scratch:

Didn't see one but heard one :clap: this morning. Very loud, like a little corncrake :unsure:.

I assure you that no Troglodytes troglodytes were harmed during this encounter !!
It's a well-known fact that pound for pound the wren has an astonishingly loud voice - particularly the 'chiiirrr' which sounds quite corncrake-y, hence my analogy.
Youtube abounds with little vids of wrens shouting their heads off: :eek: (shout).

Just spotted a wren on my hedge, looking around for insects no doubt. Not seen one here in a while.
