Doggie - that really made me chuckle! You haven't seen my neighbours - wouldn't want to do any peeping in sunny weather. :-)
Thank you everyone for the kind comments. It is these sorts of chance events that really make the bird watching worthwhile. I still love all my regulars but it is amazing to get the odd special visitor to a garden. So often they are gone before you get a chance to grab a camera. Today will take some beating.

Congratulations Dave amazing pics- I know how tiny goldcrests are(seen one once)- so to get those shots you must be over the moon!
Best wishes - jayne
what a delight thanks for making me smile
I think I would be shaking too! Wonderful photos....
Processed a few more shots this morning. The first youngster wouldn't budge from his twig and kept calling for help. The other one was much braver and having got to the fence, dropped down and hung on for dear life to a cane in the flower bed.
What fantasic shots right place right time. Really good shot of the parent also.
Well done Dave
a good laugh is better than a tonic
lovely shots very envious....

Fabulous, Dave! I've never seen a Goldcrest juv, they're lovely. Some pics even show the slightly 'disgruntled' expression of the adults!
Absolutely fabulous photos!!
A closed mouth gathers no foot.
Dave I can see why your so excited, I have only managed some poor shots of distant goldcrests let alone youngsters and they were in woodland not a garden. The first pic in the second lot of pics is my favourite thanks for sharing your bundles of joy.

Fab photos, I can see why you are excited, having them little fellows in your garden.
More fab shots. I, too, have never seen chicks before. As the Goldcrest is supposed to be a very, very small bird then these chicks must be tiny!
Indeed - that's why I was so amazed when I first caught sight of them.
That's just brilliant. Well done you for getting the pictures.
I've learned that I still have a lot to learn...
