Tool use: Great Tit trying to use one

Has anyone ever seen something like this or read about it? I did a quick search and didn't find anything about this species.

There is only this video for now, I am trying to get more information about the circumstances..

It's just exploring, turning things over to see if there's a tasty morsel hidden underneath or within the object. I've never seen a Great Tit do this apart from carry food or nesting material, and removing waste.

I don't think it was exploring the stone to search for food because 1) the stone and the wall are dry and 2) she was handling the stone for over 20 seconds until it drop it.

In any case, thanks for watching!
