Goldcrest

By Bryan_Marshall
Visit to Hartsholme Park, Lincoln at the weekend turned up this little beauty. I had no idea what it was until I googled it, then found out it is the smallest bird in the UK. Even more surprising that I spotted with my eyesight Smile

Possibly a young Firecrest?? Lovely bright orange comb they have. Goldcrests I thought were yellower.

Dave 🙂

Thanks. It's an interesting thought, but I think I'm sticking on goldcrest after looking at this - https://scottishwildlifetrust.org.uk/2014/04/goldcrest-or-firecrest/
