Long-tailed Tit

Long-tailed Tit

 

I had a wonderful half hour this afternoon when we heard lots of clicking and whistling in the garden. We haven't seen any Long-tailed Tits for some time, but a family of eight appeared suddenly with their familiar chatter. There seemed to be six very young birds with their parents. This youngster landed in a small tree near where I was standing and hopped from branch to branch inspecting cherries allowing me to get some decent close-up shots of it.
