Eurasian Blue Tit
Thanks for the comments on last Thursday's Red Kite. Yesterday (Saturday) the same bird, or another, was here. It was much higher up, allowing record shots only, but it's good to know they seem back after five years without one.

After all that excitement, back to normal with a Blue Tit.

Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well.

John

Mainly deciduous woodland, often in mixed woods but does not commonly feed in conifers. Also hedgerows, copses and very frequently in gardens and town parks. In winter occurs in reedbeds and areas of scrub, usually feeds high in trees and bushes and common visitor to garden birdtable (source: Opus)
