One of the UK's smallest and best-loved birds perched on rusted boatyard steel.
Papier mâché, wire and steel

This tiny brown bird with its pert tail tipped upright is a favourite bird of garden lovers in the UK. Common but hard to spot with its camouflaged dress and habit of fast whirring flight; it has a song that is loud, explosive and beautiful. Surprisingly so for such a little bird.
