Wrens have been a mainstay of literary, cultural and popular history. The wren has appeared on postage stamps and the farthing, in nursery rhymes, on greetings cards and in poems . . .

And rural ‘wren hunts’ are still a recent memory, particularly in Ireland. They are Britain’s most common bird, with 8.5 million breeding pairs and have by far the loudest song in proportion to their size. They also thrive up and down Britain and Ireland: from the smallest city garden to remote offshore islands, blustery moors to chilly mountains. With beautiful illustrations throughout, this captivating year-in-the-life biography reveals the secrets of this fascinating bird that lives right on our doorstep.
