Hi folks and welcome.
This is our first post on here...and to break the ice we were wondering what to start with as there is just so much we could write about. However, one thing always sticks in my mind and it was a fabulous experience that happened to me this spring!
We witnessed an unusual behaviour outside of our rear window with a Goldcrest spending a lot of time either courtship displaying or, trying to see off its own reflection (thinking it was a rival) in the glass. This display went on for quite some time when the Goldcrest was there, and it would return each day following the same ritual it had done the day before.
So engrossed in its activity was this wonderful little bird that it seemed to be totally oblivious to our presence. In fact the evidence can be seen from the picture below of just how engrossed it really was, as it used me as a vantage point with which to do its displaying! Absolutely wonderful.
