Wren decides to house-hunt in Leabank Square!!

This may not look like much…but these pictures show the precious moment when a curious little wren decided to take a peek inside one of our riverbank bird houses’.

The wren doesn't stay still for too long and so it's really quite a challenge taking a picture.

By the time I had found the camera, turned it on, found the wren through the view finder and begun to take pictures... the wren was on the verge of leaving! The above shot, shows the wren poised and ready to view the house.

The wren, as it enters the house!

Maybe this is already the family home...

Over the cold winter months we had noticed a frequent visitor to our riverbank garden.

It’s good to know that they are still visiting.

About a year and half ago, we placed a few bird houses along the riverbank.

We had assumed they were still unoccupied…but perhaps our shy friend has been surreptitiously raising a family right under our very noses??!!

Brilliant pictures. I hope you get an offer. But be careful, your nests are a little exposed, given that you have parties with a vested interest in the vicinity like that kestrel.

Good point Owen. Considering the two seconds the Wren spent viewing the property, I'm sure he has decided against the move!

The riverbank is looking so beautiful at the moment and as usual we have soooo many questions for you! Come and visit us soon!!
