Common Firecrests

I was lucky to see some Common Firecrests last weekend. They are one of our smallest birds with just 9 cm in length. In my area they are relatively rare, life hidden in dense spruce forests and can sometimes observed at forest edges. We had a fast meeting and they disappeared in the bushes. It was almost night and the light conditions were medium.
