It was very interesting to watch the Siberian and usual Chiffs flicking through the whippy twigs and branches above and along the river, which was a novelty in itself as it had breached one bank in places to flow into an adjacent body of water. In the event our success was limited to three Goldcrest and a Wren.
Goldcrests aged 5 and 6 - tails for comparisen
6 Male wing - whiter and more clearly marked tips to tertials and greater coverts. The rounder primary coverts are unfortunately not too easy to see here.
5 Male wing - Tipping less defined and feathers generally less pristine.
Goldcrest - 3
