Long-tailed tits (Aegithalidae)

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

Not the commonest of the tits dear Nick, but such little beauties. A fair pair indeed!

Amelia Royan ~ OK I'll behave myself dearest LGM :)))) They really are such fun to see a little gang of them flitting here and there then charging off ~ This feeder is at home, but I also have a few feeders located at work that I can see from my office windows and then of course there is the lake side location too ~ Yes I've gone bonkers feeding the wild birds this winter ~ it has helped to make such a crap dull grey winter bearable and admiring little pairs of tits like these two is an uplifting experience :~) xxx Roll on Spring ~~~
