Keep 'em coming S, really appreciate seeing them, thanks. Blue Tits really are such very pretty and striking looking little birds with larger than life attitude which defies their size; I remember being at a ringing session when ringer said blue tits (out of the regular garden type birds) are the ones most likely to nip you so when nobody volunteered to release it I offered ......... and it almost drew blood ! I love these brave and feisty little birds !
