Firecrest video

The firecrest was still present today and had a number of admirers but was much more difficult to observe than when I found it yesterday and it hardly made any noise. There were also two Goldcrests in the area which made things a bit more complicated. It was feeding exclusively on the ground during the 25 minutes that I saw the bird but then vanished for a couple of hours before being found again later. For an insect eating bird of more southerly climes it must be a challenge to stay alive!
