    The Long-tailed Tits haven't been around so much lately though I got a few new pictures today. We have a lot of Whooper Swans in the area at the moment so I had some fun photographing them this afternoon.

    I'm trying to find Long-tailed Tit pictures that are different from the ones I've posted previously. There seems to be a monochrome theme this week though that wasn't deliberate. Most of our snow and ice is gone, at least for now.

    I can't stop photographing these birds. They always cheer me up.

    Who are you?

    Our Long-tailed Tits seem to have deserted us just at the time when people are counting birds in the garden for Birdlife Sweden. No posts yesterday as it was our annual Burns Supper.

    Am I cute?

    I like the fact that we've had a lot of snow this winter. It's been a bit too cold at times but rather that than a grey and rainy winter. It's a joy to have so many Long-tailed Tits in the garden but they're often too fast for me.

    They're in the garden a lot these days but it's not always easy to get pictures. This one was posing very nicely though.

    I had noticed a coming and going under a trunk where the feathers of a Blackbird female predated by the Sparrowhawk were. I, therefore, thought of "sowing" fresh and inviting feathers closer and in better light, well, I had to replenish 3 times, after two days, however, the party was over, or in...

    A tuft of soft feathers is enough and a real frenzy is unleashed, the feathers are necessary for the particular nest of the Long-tailed tits (Aegithalos caudatus).

    Feels as though spring is finally making an appearance now - just in time for Easter. Great that we have these sweet birds in the garden all the time.

    Horrible weather today but the rain is washing away the last of the snow. Our Common Crane pair arrived during the week but haven't come close enough for pictures.

    No posts yesterday as we attended a birthday party for a six-year-old. (My wife's niece's little boy.)

    Maybe the last one for a while. They seem to be getting a bit tired of me and my camera.

    Damp Long-tailed Tit

    I've taken quite a few pictures of Long-tailed Tits during the week but this one is from yesterday. It was snowing but the snow was a bit damp so the plumage is a little wet.

    They're in the garden a lot and are a little less flighty since they began to split into smaller groups. Still a challenge though.

    They're on the feeders all the time now but they're always on the move.

    The Long-tailed Tits are more at home in the garden now. They are more used to me and my camera and they split into smaller groups and sometimes behave individually. That makes them less flighty.

    I'm beginning to find ways of photographing the Long-tailed Tits without scaring them off. Didn't work today though as the lock on the gate to the veranda was frozen and I made a bit of noise opening it.

    We have had Long-tailed Tits in the garden fairly often but they never stay for long.

    3 re-processed pictures from the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 today. New pictures next time though. We had a light snowfall on Christmas Eve and a lot more snow fell yesterday.

    Saw them a few times in Helensburgh but only got close enough for pictures once. Interesting to compare them with the Swedish ones I photographed from the flat window at the end of September. I posed one of these a few weeks ago.

    First time we've seen Long-tailed Tits from the flat. My wife spotted the first one and was overjoyed. And so was I. This is the white-headed Nordic sub-species.
