Internationally known as the winter wren this bird is a common resident bird in the UK. Like the Dunnock it is an agitated looking bird, always flicking its wings and tail. In flight, its wing beats are rapid, and it tends to fly short distances only and in a straight line.
Its diet consists of spiders and insects. They occasionally take seed or cheese from the ground feeder table.
The male bird constructs several globe-shaped nests in holes in walls, banks, trees, or old nests from leaves, grass and moss. When the female has chosen a nest, she lines it with feathers. Breeding starts in late April and they usually have 2 clutches a year.
