Unknown bird

  Can anyone identify this bird for me please. 

  • Hi Suzie, Welcome to the Forum.  They are Long-Tailed Tits and some of my favourites!  Lucky you!  They rarely spend long at the feeders so you need to be watching at just the right time to see them before they are off again.  However, they will visit several times per day so keep watching for them.  They almost always travel in family groups although we have a few times had a solitary LTT visitor. 

    Kind regards, 

    Ann

    Hi Thank you for your quick reply.  There were two or three of them and it's really good to know which type of bird ready for the rspb bird watch next week.  Best wishes  Sue. 

  • I think long tailed tits look like fluffy lollipops on long sticks! Lovely clear photo, Suzieq

  • Hello Suzieq. Look like long tailed tits ! We have them in our garden and they rush in in large groups then rush out again after stuffing their faces with the sunflower seeds and fat balls! Enjoy them they are lovely!
