I took this photo on Boxing day and to my surprise when I was cropping I came across this little bird on the fat balls. Can anybody confirm my suspicions and confirm that it is actually a Goldcrest.

Great captures Andy :clap3:

We seem to do quite well with house sparrows in our garden and we normally get a dozen or more visiting at once.
