Goldcrest_16-05-07_Regulus regulus

There is usually a Goldcrfest in the vicinity of my garden but this bird was exceptional. It took a dislike to its own reflection in my shed windows and was so distracted that I just walked up to it to take these photos.

Unfortunately the bird seemed to have taken its obsession too far so I blanked out the windows to kill the refection and eventually the Goldcrest returned to the conifers from where it came.
