I was expecting you, CC ;-D It just didn't seem to quite fit 'stood standing' or 'sat sitting', so split the difference ;) Now don't you dare criticise my split infinitive >:(
Credit is due to IAN S for the original heads-up to Animal's Guide, plus KORKY for bringing it forward but she got dangled on the end of last month's thread.
KORKY, I didn't know you'd posted 2 when I snapped this one of 3, cross my heart!
The one in the bottom corner was trying to pluck up courage to get on the feeder but when it eventually did it got short shrift!
No Cresties spotted since that first day, what a stroke of luck it was :o

Ha! I am always happy to bow to your superior snapping skills scylla. But where is the crestie picture? No pressure....

And I am under huge pressure - dang laptop is still seizing up since that Windows Update - hence I got 6 hours of garbled feeder:
Got a Robin tho :)
It was quite timid but it did get some blurry bites eventually:
I am so far behind !!! I was about to delete the out-of-date ones when something made me check...
It kept having to chase off a Coal Tit, almost faster than the eye could see! But it did get a good feed in the end. Does it have a speckly head? Youngster or moulting?
Mustn't neglect the Robin :-*
Four Blue Tits!
Five black-and-white heads (counting the one on the left) and one red-white-and-black :)
I don't know when I'll get around to finishing Friday the 13th and set out on the 14th...
Lovely scylla! Very fitting that you are the first to snap the crestie. Of course, we all know they hide from the rest of us
The crestie came for a nano-second! Frightened off by all the other tits.
Lovely big snaps with super pointy crests, KORKY! :)))
