Another shot of the busy little female Goldcrest (Regulus regulus) which seems to be visiting the garden more often now - always in the same ornamental conifer. Didn't appear during the snow though - smart bird!!

Thank you all for your C&Cs on my last upload - very much appreciated as always Smile

Beautiful little bird Sylvia. I have only ever managed to get one shot of these. Lovely sharp eye and beak. I will have to be more alert.
