This is my first post. A tiny Goldcrest flew into my window today. I picked it . up and took indoors to rest. So happy that he recovered so I put him out into a small bush and he then flew into a nearby tree. I wonder if he will find a flock of his own kind?

Hi Valerie and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

Well done on getting this one recovered enough to fly off.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.
