Tiny birds on feeder

Hi everyone,

I'm hoping somebody can help me.

I have a pair of tiny birds that regularly visit my feeders. I think they might be Goldcrests but reading online it suggests they do not visit garden feeders.

Apologies for picture quality, but they are constantly on the move and very difficult to photograph. This is the best I could do.

Correct, Goldcrests are being reported as visiting garden feeders more often these days.

It is indeed a Goldcrest. They do occasionally visit garden feeders. We get one now and again after the suet and mealworms.
