The breeding range in Western Europe experienced an expansion during the 1980s and 1990s.[2] This was accompanied by an expansion of the species’ winter range and reached as far south as northern Morocco.[3]

It builds an elaborate hanging nest, formerly used in Central Europe as children's slippers.[4]
