Long-Tailed Tits

The Long-Tailed Tit is not a common visitor to my garden, having only ever spotted a couple.

During the Christmas holidays, I looked out into the garden at dusk one day and saw the fatball feeder covered in lots of them! I counted a group of 10 in total. They have since become regular visitors, now they know that the food is there for them.

I took a video the first evening I saw them and some photos when they came back another day. Cute little things!
