Three Wrens in one afternoon - like waiting for a bus.

With an estimated 8.6M breeding Wrens in the UK according to the APEP figures it is always surprising that I don't see more of them. Last weekend I tracked three through the bushes and shrubs close to the River Tyne that runs through my patch here in East Lothian. They must be searching for food and therefore becoming more visible, or I'm getting better at spotting them as they dart through the undergrowth. I seemed to be missing their familiar calls which would help finding them.
Trying to get a photo was more difficult especially when my faithful Labrador kept flushing them onwards. Got one half-decent shot although would like the head in the next one..
