The Wren, one of Britain’s smallest birds, is a resident here at Wellington College. It is more likely to be heard than seen and its tic-tic-tic and strrrrrrr call indicate that they are around. A short and dumpy bird, they eat spiders and insects. The male will make several nests each year and his mate will then choose the one she would like to use to lay eggs in. They nest around the gardens and wider estate at Wellington.
