Common Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus)

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

This is the lakeside place of the friendly Robin ~ where I have hung fat seed balls in a wire holder, nuts in a wire holder and bird grain in a plastic tube and access holes. The Robin has learnt to use all three ~ now his neighbours the Blue Tits gather round to get some too. There are several pairs and Mr Robin is none too pleased ~ but can't fight them all off :~) For me ~ I'm trying to learn how to take shots of birds and I'm not finding it easy. The Blue Tits for example hardly ever stay still for longer than a second or two. The bird grain tube is to be partially seen here.
