Long-tailed Tit & a mixed flock of tits in the garden today.

Thought it was going to be incredibly quiet in the garden today as there’d been very little and then a mixed flock of tits came through including 3 of my favourites the Long-tailed Tit – Know Your Tits – Long-tailed Tits – something I wrote last year as I was trying to get my hands working again and get myself excited about photography & birding – okay never lost either passion just hadn’t been doing it.  I would get a bit down when I heard of a great bird sighting or seeing a fantastic photo as I knew I couldn’t get out and see the bird or take photos!  I’ve added a photo of a Long-tailed Tit that was shot out of the bedroom window while I was recovering from my first ankle surgery.   The flock included the 3 long-tailed tits, 3 coal tits, 2 blue tits and a great tit:

  1. Blackbird x 2
  2. Blue Tit x 2
  3. Coal Tit x 3
  4. Dunnock x 2
  5. Great Tit x 1
  6. Herring Gull x 1 – I think it looked to be a juvenile
  7. House Sparrow x 2
  8. Long-tailed Tit x 3
  9. Magpie x 1
  10. Woodpigeon x 3
