A tiny brown bird, the Wren is dumpy, almost rounded, with a fine bill, quite long legs and toes, very short round wings and a short, narrow tail which is sometimes cocked up vertically. For such a small bird it has a remarkably loud voice.
The Wren is one of our most widespread breeding birds, found in all but some of the most remote and high-altitude parts of the UK. Despite its abundance – an estimate of 7.7 million breeding territories was made for the population in 2009 – this is a bird that is more often heard than seen.
