As a month, February is all about love. From the commercial romance of Valentines Day to the RSPB supported 'Show the Love' campaign from the Climate Coalition, caring, sharing and heart-wearing is the theme of the year's second month. And when it comes to sharing, the bird world doesn't come much more social than the long-tailed tit.
Often seen in large family groups, these lot are not only displaying their love for peanuts, but sharing it too. So remember, whether it's family, friends, neighbours, a romantic partner or even just the world around you, a little love goes a long way!
Definitely no peanut allergies here (Photo courtesy of Nature's Home reader Stephen Linehan)

It is especially nice to get a flock of them visiting your feeders!
Yes, they are little charmers for sure!
I get lots on my feeders here in Norfolk. They are beautiful & much smaller than you imagine. Long tails but very tiny bodies. Delightful!
A little group of them have recently discovered my suet candle. They are an absolute delight!
I know they like to go about as a flock, but even one on any of my feeders would be a first.
