A wonderful five minutes.............................. just watching these little beauties

After work last night I was sat in the garden enjoying the last of the sunshine...

...when three juvenile Long-tailed Tits stopped by for a feed.

Last year they were regular visitors ... I've not seen so many this year.

Beautiful little balls of fluff with tiny little beaks... I can't get enough of them.

I hope it won't be too long before they return.

I like the 3rd pic down, all fluffy up and so cute.. Bob's planes are very small engines, electric not gas. they are not allowed to fly the gas powered ones in the park because of noise and they are dangerous. when he flies the gas noise makers he goes to the club he belongs to out in the country.

They're wonderful. And five minutes of good birding is enough to make your day wonderful! Lovely that you can do that in your very own garden.

What a neat bird, Andrew! I don't think I've ever seen one before now. So glad I stopped by!

Hello Andrew!:) They truely are beautiful, as are your captures. I'm so envious that you can see the Longtailed Tit in your garden. They are so shy here they never visit mine.:(
