Tiny brown bird that often holds its short little tail cocked up. Often sings from a fairly exposed perch, but at other times rather mouselike, creeping in brambles and understory. As such, can be quite inconspicuous. Favours wooded areas with a dense understory, as well as gardens, hedges in farmland, heathland, and coastal cliffs. Heard much more than seen: song is loud, bright, and musical, a varied series of trills and ringing warbles, repeated. Chipping calls can also give away its presence.
My baubles are made with acrylic yarn, safety eyes and satin ribbon loops for hanging. They are filled with toy stuffing, and are sized at 6-7 cm in diameter. All items are hand made, and there may be some slight variation from bauble to bauble of the same bird species as a result.
