Eurasian (European) Blue Tit
This was on the big tree right outside my window. Soon the tree will be in full leaf and block out a large part of the view, but at the moment it gives opportunities for photographing birds foraging for insects etc in its leaflets.

Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding!
