Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes)
The wren is a very small (9cm) bird with a very loud ‘tit, tit, tit’ call . It is reddish-brown with a short, cocked tail. It hides and flits in a fast, direct way with its short, rounded wings.
The male makes, not one but several ball- shaped nests in hedges, ivy, old pots, buildings etc. The female then chooses just one of them in which to lay 5-8 white, speckled eggs.
Wrens like to eat insects and spiders as they flit from place to place.
