Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 8th February, 2018)
Beautiful shot to accompany yesterday's blue tit David. Cheers.Size for size no other
bird sings their heart out more lovlier
than our Jenny.
Good shot David, such a lovely little ball of feathers.
Little Jenny Wren- so cute, not the smallest of birds, but one of the shortest. The bird appeared on the farthing - I can just about remember that!
Last year my sister had a bird box with Eleven Wrens using it at the same time.
My favourite little bird of all time..scuttles along the ground like a little mouse...and the singing that comes out of that little body is something else..beautiful...thanks David
We used to call them two fingered wrens, because you could only get two fingers in there nests when you was pinching there eggs.
Well done David.
Who remembers the farthing, with the wren on the tails side?
If we applied the same spending power, as we did in 1960, getting rid of the farthing, the 1p, 2p,and 5p coins would go.
Britains smallest bird! Good pic!
Jenny Wren featured on reverse of farthing coin. For us old 'uns half penny, penny, threepenny bit, sixpence, shilling, florin (two shillings), half crown, crown (five shillings). No wonder bus conductors always walked with a stoop. The weight of their change bag!!
Another nice photo David, Ive never managed to snap the little Wren,always evaded me ,well done,not the smallest bird in Britain, I may add Johnny, that title goes to the Goldcrest.
Thanks for this David, one of the best shots I've seen on here.
With the firecrest, the goldcrest is the UK's smallest bird. They're dull greyish-green with a pale belly and a black and yellow stripe on their heads, which has an orange centre in males. Their thin beak is ideally suited for picking insects out from between pine needles.
Ah the lovely Miss Jenny - gorgeous photo
