Key Information

About the Wren

Britain’s most widespread bird, the wren is a popular little garden visitor. One of the main threats to this bird is the colder winter temperatures we can experience in the UK. Because they do not migrate, longer periods of snow covered grounds and cold temperatures can be pretty detrimental to these small bodied birds.

Identifying features:

Almost entirely brown with dashes of lighter brown and cream, the Wren has a rotund and stocky stature.

Measurements:

Length: 9-10cm
Wingspan: 13-17cm
Weight: 7-12g

What they eat:

Wrens will stay hidden but enjoy eating insects on and around the bird table.

 

Where and when to see them

Wren birds are found in woodlands, parks, gardens, farmland, hedgerows indeed any open country habitat with suitable scrub.

Bird Calls

Considering their size, wrens have a massive voice. The song is loud and always moving down the music scale.
It is a series of metallic buzzing and trilling notes.
