RE: Goldcrest or Firecrest

Hi Ian

The photograph you have taken is definitely a firecrest and you did quite well to get any kind of picture as they are very mobile busy little birds.

To confirm, please view the image from my web site which should help you confirm the identity of your bird - http://www.firecrest-wildlife-photograph...ombe-B.htm

If you check the United Kingdom gallery of my web site you will also find images of goldcrest for comparison. http://www.firecrest-wildlife-photograph...allery.htm
Hope this helps
Coincidentally, my company has been named after this tiny bird for many years now as it is a small British bird with an attitude - pretty much like myself!

Best wishes
Carole Leigh

While watching goldfinches feeding in our garden this morning, my wife and I spotted a small bird in an acer tree on our patio. Grabbing my camera I was able to take a few shots of a bird that we took to be a goldcrest, a species we have not seen in our garden before. It wasn't until we looked at the photos again and compared it with others in books and online that we thought we might be wrong in our identification. Is it possible that we saw a firecrest?

Does anybody have any thoughts on what we may have seen? I think the above two photos could be the key to identifying this bird. I have uploaded a few more to my flickr photostream, including larger versions of these (click on a photo above). I'm sorry the photos a not great quality, they're the best I could manage.

Any information greatfully received!
