Long-tailed tits (Aegithalidae) & Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus)

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

The long-tailed tit is easily recognisable with its distinctive colouring, a tail that is bigger than its body, and undulating flight. Gregarious and noisy residents, long-tailed tits are most usually noticed in small, excitable flocks of about 20 birds. Like most tits, they rove the woods and hedgerows, but are also seen on heaths and commons with suitable bushes. From the RSPB

Lady Harley, ~ Hi Judy I just love to watch these little birds flitting about and having fun and if the sun is out it is an added bonus ~ which has been all too rare so far this year ~ but Spring must be around the corner now ~ Thanks for the like ~ nick

Steve Drury, ~ The tits seem to like the fat balls better than either nuts or bird seed ~ This feeder is very near to the house and a window ~ it took several weeks before they were comfortable enough to come to feed, preferring half coconut shells full of fat and seed hung in the hedge further away from the house. This one allows me to sit in comfort awaiting sunlight and visits :~))) It takes to long to wait for sunlight though which is in short supply so far this year! Thanks for the like ~ All the best ~ nick
