Collection: Firecrest

In recent years, Firecrests have regularly crossed the Channel to nest in low trees and bushes. Although similar in appearance to the Goldcrest, its olive-green plumage has a distinctly yellowish tinge, with an enhanced bronze sheen on the nape and shoulders. It is immediately distinguishable from the Goldcrest by its broad whitish fawn stripe above the eye and black stripe through it, there is also a striking golden suffusion on its shoulder.

The crests are different colours; the female’s copper-gold, the male’s flame-coloured and the song is louder, lower-pitched, less persistent and hardly more than a repeating of one note.

It’s a very small bird (9cm).

Firecrests are seen more frequently during autumn and winter.

These delicate birds eat small insects – so, why not try Haith's Prosecto? Its soft texture is perfect for tiny birds. Once they get to recognise it as a good food source, they should soon be back for more on a regular basis.
