Goldcrest (Regulus regulus)

By DerekL  
Thank you for voting and commenting and my previous upload of a Hawfinch, with special thanks for the generous User Awards received from Brian (brian17302), Bob (bobpaige1), Peter (Jerrin), Bill (Rookerey), Ju (JuBarney), Richard (rsjkinson), Tony (Tony_Baloni), Harry (HenB), Tony (tonyguitar), Malcolm (M_squared), Carol (CarolAnnLauderdale) and Veronique (Nouche), all much appreciated as usual.

Today is a Goldcrest I was fortunate to capture yesterday at The Wolseley Centre, Staffordshire.
This is the UK's smallest bird (along with the Firecrest), measuring just 9cm in length.
A difficult bird to capture, as it flits around so quickly in the foliage.
