Oh I see now, never heard that before, glad you were being polite Korky!

Bit of a Titfest going on at the moment!
Korky said:Nice to see you back Mary. Nil carborundum.
Well Korky I have never heard of this saying, but I absolutely "love it" ha ha....
Well Done on capturing the Cresties, I have yet to see one on the LG feeder, but do hark back to a photo I have posted before of having the great pleasure of having them feed from my hand in Switzerland.
Taken a while ago, so quality not very good I am afraid

Wow! That's amazing Mary. So lucky. Photos are great! They are such flighty birds I'd never have imagined they'd feed from your hand. Must try that up at LG this year......(I've only ever seen them on the webcam)
Korky despite visiting Loch Garten many many times since 2011 I have yet to see a Crested Tit there. Not for the want of looking for them.
That must have been a real Wow moment Mary, having the cresties feed from your hand, magic.
