Goldcrest,- weighing the same as a 20 pence piece, the UK’s smallest bird is back in our garden and their call is worth listening out for. Usually eating insects on and around  conifers, these stunning, very active, ‘busy’ birds venture into gardens more in cold winters. Their call is so sweet and high-pitched it is beyond some people’s hearing range- described as “Siii Siii” (!), if you can’t hear it, look out for it among conifers any time of year- flitting through vegetation, picking at small insects. Conditions: Still, light cloud. Temperature: Max 9- Min 5C.
