Troglodytes troglodytes

One of the most common birds on the Isles of Scilly, the wren is easily recognisable. Often seen as a chocolatey brown ball flitting into the undergrowth, or singing proudly atop a gorse or bramble bush. They have short rounded wings, and an equally short tail that is sometimes seen raised vertically in the air. 

They can be easily overlooked because of their abundance, but are a treat to observe.
