Long-tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus)
Probably my favourite garden visitor the Long-tailed Tits have only been coming for the last couple of years. Usually a flock of ten or so birds arrive, have a quick snack then as one they are off and I may not see another for weeks on end. This year has started differently though. For the first time I have had a single bird on the suet block right outside my french doors and nearly every day for over a week. This morning I saw it again but this time there was two. Has my little friend got a mate and are they nesting nearby. I hope so as they are such a pretty bird to see and fantastic acrobats.......they look like a little bird stuck on to a stick.
