The goldcrest is the UK’s smallest bird. They’re dull greyish-green with a pale belly and a black and yellow stripe on their heads, which has an orange centre in males. Their thin beak is ideally suited for picking insects out from between pine needles. Coniferous woodland or parks with large mature trees are the best places to see goldcrests, but they range around in flocks of other small birds during autumn and winter. They’re widespread and common across the whole of the UK. In autumn, large numbers arrive on the east coast from Scandinavia and make their way across dunes to more suitable habitat.
