Juvenile tit - coal or great

I have a juvenile tit in my back garden , looks fine albeit a little scruffy. It is flying and very energetic however it keeps hovering by my back door and dive bombs myself and husband whenever we go out . It then stays sat on our arms, back,head squawking to be fed. It even tries to get inside the house. It can feed itself - as I've left crushed up peanuts,seeds,plums and chopped up boiled egg and it's managed with these- a bit clumsy but it has managed.

Welcome to Birdforum!
If its scruffy and feeding itself its more probably an overworked parent(adult) bird!
Putting the food well away from windows is a good idea as they have a tendency to attack their own reflection

It never surprise me that new members post on here seeking advice and then when someone takes the time to reply TUMBLE WEED. Nothing back from the OP.

How difficult is it for someone who takes the time to register at a forum - a process in itself - to simply post a 'thank you'

And they're from my home city too!!!
