More on Garden Bird Sightings

This morning, the 9th February 2013, whilst about to sit down for a breakfast of bacon and eggs, I saw a tiny bird in a rosemary bush about 12 feet from the window.  Very busy searching for food it really worked the branches, peering and poking into every cluster of fat leaves.  But then it started moving through the keria stems towards the window.  I had time to find a camera and take lots of shots, but its speed and the camera’s slow response meant I was lucky to get one I could display – and here it is, a tiny Goldcrest.

Whilst it was busy right beside my rapidly cooling breakfast I noticed another small brown bird actively beating a green caterpillar against the stems of an lilac bush before flying up into the bay tree a few feet away.  Surely they can’t be nesting yet?  Must be soon though.
