FOCUS ON THE BIRD

 

THE WREN (Troglodytes troglodytes)

Family - Troglodytidae.

Length - 9 to 10cm. Wingspan - 13 to 17cm. Weight - 8 to 13g. Lifespan - 2 to 5 years.

Conservation Status - Secure.

Seen - All year round almost anywhere, from open cliff tops and heaths to broadleaved and coniferous woodland, parks, gardens and hedgerows.

Eats - Insects, caterpillars and spiders and sometimes feeds on scraps scattered under bushes.

Nests - Small, loose ball of leaves, moss and grass with a round entrance hole. Sited in a bank, wall, wood stack or bush from April to July. 5 - 12 eggs. 2 broods.

 

One of Europe's smallest birds and a determined singer with a big voice. With tail raised and bill wide open a singing Wren puts all its efforts into a loud vibrant song. Sings throughout the year to maintain its territories. Male and Female look alike and spend most of their time low down, on or near the ground often deep in thickets of bramble, bracken or ornamental shrubbery. Cold winters cause dramatic declines in their population but Wren populations often recover quite quickly. Known in winter to gather in communal roosts.
