Blue Tit

Latin name

Cyanistes caeruleus

 

Family

Tits (Paridae)

 

Overview

A colourful mix of blue, yellow, white and green makes the blue tit one of our most attractive and most recognisable garden visitors. In winter, family flocks join up with other tits as they search for food. A garden with four or five blue tits at a feeder at any one time may be feeding 20 or more.

 

Where to see them

Blue tits are common in woodland, hedgerows, parks and gardens. They're widespread and found across the whole of the UK with the exception of some Scottish islands.

 

When to see them

All year round.

 

What they eat

Insects, caterpillars, seeds and nuts.
