Description:

High, 'tinselly' song first heard, then saw it flitting around hawthorn bush, like a little fluffy pin-ball, hunting for insects in twigs; it seemed quite unconcerned by my presence only ~2m away.

Wow! Excellent shot of a normally elusive bird.

I suspect this is going to be a rare sight this year after 2 cold winters,
