The gatepost was on the left side of my car (for those that drive on the wrong side of the road, that's the passenger side LOL).

So I shoved the camera into my friend's hand and got him to take the picture. By the time he'd worked out the controls he only managed this image and the next two, the following one the Coal Tit was preparing to fly and the last was the tail only shot!

But at least he got him with one of the pink suet nibbles in his beak.
