A pair of Long Tailed Tits ~ Aegithalidae ~ at the nut feeder

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.

well, my friend, Nick you have found a new specialty for you! Bird shots.! LOVE THEM ALL, this one is fantastic, as all are, your lens, or your expertise, is right on....ya know Nick, I think I enjoy your "bird shots" actually better than the ones you go get of all your lovely buildings. seriously! even tho those shots are always so well done as well.

kind regards w/hugs ~~Sarah~~

Sarah O, ~ Hiya dear Sarah ~ how is that foot doing? Is Mr O better now? I know one thing ~ bird shots are much harder than building shots :~))))

On the rare occasions when it does all come together far more satisfying ~ I'm glad that you enjoy them too ~ The camera and lens are responsible for the quality really of course ~ All the very best and a hug ~ nick
