The Wren is to be seen both in the garden and in the undergrowth on the face of the cliff. However, sightings are not frequent and its small size, restless behaviour and furtive habit all conspire to make it hard to get a decent picture.

It took about five years before I got any passable pictures of a wren in the garden. Even then, the bird was so busy that most of the shots were blurred. These three are the best of the bunch to date.

This bird was singing and performing an energetic wing fluttering display on the undercliff.

The Wren on the right was singing vigorously. Remarkably loud for such a small bird.

A week later I came across what I think was the same bird
