Bird Watching (UK) - - 30 Years Of Birdwatching -

The Firecrest is a bird we were al­ways promised would colonise the UK. Af­ter the first proved breed­ing in 1962, they have slowly but surely in­creased. By 1989, there were 130 pairs breed­ing, though this crashed to fewer than 20 pairs by 1992. There are now an es­ti­mated 550 pairs.
