Goldcrest - Hebridean Birds Sightings
Western Isles Birds Sightings - The goldcrest is the Uk's smallest bird.
Really pretty birds that love pine needles as their beak is ideally suited for picking out the insects between the needles.
They are a dull greyish-green with a pale belly and a black and yellow stripe on their heads, which has an orange centre in males.
You can often see the them in and amongst flocks of other birds, not seen that often here in The Western Isles
although more so in recent years
