Today, this Goldcrest, Europe’s tiniest species of bird, made several visits to the rotten sill of one of the windows that will be replaced in July. It gave me a rare opportunity to see the little creature at close quarters, as unlike tits, nuthatches, robins and woodpeckers, it does not come to bird feeders. Here is a video of the little bird. Its mate in the nearby tree looked on but didn’t join it.
