Goldcrests along the Glen

We have seen butterflies enjoying Glen Goyle:

And today, volunteers on the working party saw Britain’s tiniest bird enjoying the dappled glades:

“There were two goldcrests in the pines today where we were working. I have these birds in my cedar at home, but have never heard or seen them in Glen Goyle. Very exciting.”
