A juvenile goldcrest?

This little chap visited my garden this morning. I think it’s a juvenile goldcrest...but could be wrong! 

  • Not a Goldcrest I'm afraid. It's a juvenile Coal Tit. Cute little bird.
    Incidentally you seem to have started two identical threads

  • Only just seen this duplicate thread, didn't see your answer on here Tony and replied to the other thread. Phew, glad I got it right lol

    Thanks for the info I posted twice by mistake, thought I had deleted one of them!
  • In reply to HAZY:

    This little bird allowed me to get really close to take some pictures (just on my iPhone). I hope it visits again
  • In reply to Lesfingres:

    It may still be being fed by its parents so try not to disturb it too much and keep your distance
