In the Pleasaunce, often to be found in the bushes to the west side of the bowling green, the wren is described as a 'tiny bird with a larger than life character'. It has an outstandingly cheerful song but can be difficult to see.


Its main food is spiders, invertebrates and insects. There are usually two broods of six. In spring, wrens will build several nests on their territory; the nest is usually cleverly camouflaged in a tree, ivy or bark.
