Wren. The wren is a tiny brown bird, although it is heavier, less slim, than the even smaller goldcrest. It is dumpy, almost rounded, with a fine bill, quite long legs and toes, very short round wings and a short, narrow tail which is sometimes cocked up vertically. For such a small bird it has a remarkably loud voice. It is the commonest UK breeding bird, although it suffers declines during prolonged, severely cold winters.

Oystercatchers Appliqued Cushion, handmade and embroidered by Karen Walshe

Applique Cushion Oystercatchers, pale brown bird, grey beak, duck egg blue wing

One summer I had this strange looking bird in my garden.  For weeks I kept wondering what is was, and mentioning out loud how similar its movement and stance was to robins:). Even  though Robins are my ultimate favourite, and spirit animal, I had never seen a baby Robin before:)  This one is already breaking its tangerine chest <3

"What will be your summer-wildlife highlight? A dawn chorus combining birds of woodland and wetland? Lying in a meadow of orchids and ox-eye daisies? A boat trip to an offshore island where puffins peer curiously at you? Or a dune tiger beetle, scurrying along the sand beneath the bluest of summer skies? This book celebrates the special, the rare and the spectacular." A Summer of British Wildlife by James Lowen #100dayswild
