Lovely Kenny

Keep em coming old buddy

Hi Jethro They are long tailed tits. Cute little devils arn't they?

I have uploaded coal tits in the past. Use my tit tag to refresh your memory.

I'm always afraid of using THAT tag Kenny in case the wife catches me.

lmho.... god knows whats else under THAT tag is! :D

lovely shot! i often wonder about those rings... so there are somebody who go round catching birds and ring them... i have several in my collection too. arem they like special birds? or just been too unfortunate to get cought and ringed? in some of our waxwing pictures we noticed there is one completely black waxwing... doesnt seem to have ring though...

Adorable little birds, Kenny, and a lovely capture of them. Like Jethro, I have lost the ability to name British birds, but I always look forward to seeing them on my visits. Theolfa

Heres a puzzle for you all - look at the map to the right of the photo - can anyone tell me about those circles?


Yorkshire Sam on February 1, 2011

I found these a while back *Kenny * but as yet have no idea what they are about. It's obvious they are fairly large given the single tracks between circles are at least the width of whatever vehicle was used.( Using GE ruler the circle track width is approx 28 ft and cicle diameter 130 ft approx. They were either scraped off to remove all vegetation or a total weedkiller was used, since no spoil is evident I'm guessing the latter option. Possibly some experiment to see how quickly bracken invades since I know it is becoming a threat to the heather moor that, why the circles I have no idea but I like a challenge :O) .

PS, interesting to note there has been no heather burning on this section of moor so it has definately been selected to be managed differently.

Cute birds! I´ve seen only once, altogether seven in my balcony. They are very rare here in Finland, usually come only visit here from Russian great woods. Long Tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus) They warm each other in cold weather with their little bodies, beautiful! Like, Joni
