I managed 2 of them over the weekend. On Saturday morning there was one just outside the bedroom at my B&B (the shots were taken through the window but I was quite pleased with them - never having got as close to a wren before) then on Monday I visited a new location following up a tip about wild otters, (apparently a couple of days too late) and had this fine example visit the tree right beside me, and giving me time for at least a dozen shots.
Having the right lens mounted before spotting them helped, but I think the biggest help I had was my kids being 200 miles away - nothing stays around with the din they make!!
