One of my favourite birds and for Britain's commonest breeding bird, the Wren with it's shy behaviour is always a challenge, so was pleased with this shot - the singing was a bonus Smiley Happy

Lovely shot @markulous Smiley Happy. Gorgeous little birds Smiley Happy


i once set ny phone ring tone to a wren singing - only problem was I then sat listening to the birds singing thinking how lovely it was (and a bit unexpected in a town car park) and didn't answer the phone!

HaHa, @illneverrememberit
I remember just before Classic FM first went on air, their test signal was a 30 minute loop of birdsong. I used to turn the volume up in the car as I drove - fabulous! What was amazing was a guy who identified the exact location of the recording from the variety and number of birds - somewhere in Kent, IIRC
