Long Tailed Tits



A few years ago I was in my garden and watched as a group of Long Tailed Tits flew into our tree, only to be chased off again by a couple of territorial Blue Tits. They are a delightful little bird, very pretty and never alone, they are a flock bird, and I thought I wouldn't see them again, and in fact I never did.... until today!! Again I was in my kitchen and a flock of about 10 flew in and had a good rummage about in amongst the branches of all the little trees and shrubs. The camera was handy as always, so I snapped away.....

They have to be one of my favourite birds, so I felt quite priviledged to see them in my garden, I do hope they come back again soon.

They look right at home there, quite happy rummaging around.

Thanks for your comments Peggy, its always good to know that someone takes the time to read the blog. I will make sure to be watching today at the same time to see if they come back, sorry about the photographs, they're not very clear, they were taken through the window.. Take care Tatty

Wow you're very lucky to get such an interesting bird in the garden. As we are quite central to the city we dont get much more than magpies. We do have a friendly little robin at our allotment though!

Great post,

With the exception of the gluttonous pigeon, I love them all.

This miserable winter is getting me down at the moment.

I need a lift, only a few mild sunny weeks can deliver.
