colour with a red breast, chin and face. The juvenile has a brown head, wings and
tail with brown barring on the buffy back and breast.
|Voice||Thin tic-tic-tic, repeated. Song, a leisurely warble.|
|Habitat||Towns and gardens, heaths, woods hedges.|
|Breeding Habits||5-6 eggs in a cup on a tree, stump or on a bank. Incubation takes
12-15 days and fledging also takes 12-15 days.
2-3 broods per year; April-June.
|Location in Wet Woodland||Found in all areas of the wet woodland, apart from the stony area where
the ground is too hard and rocky to feed on. There is also not enough cover because of the
lack of small trees and bushes.
It was mostly observed feeding on damp ground or sitting on low branches of small trees.
