I've scrolled back and at around 16:25 there were two Cresties

Last evening there was a flurry of birdies at the feeder which I felt was unusual, tho I can't claim to remember time patterns.
The first 2 this morning - the Crestie ate behind the feeder:
There were fewer birds than usual, see how wet the squirrel's tail is:
A Robin popped in - it seemed bewildered by the other birds and only got a 2-second stab at the peanuts:
A creamy Crestie:
Two Cresties at once!
There was another flurry before darkness, amongst which was a Crestie, late as usual but it wasn't the last - the last one stayed behind the feeder, probably a Coal Tit.

I keep meaning to report that we're still getting visitors every day - this afternoon there was a group of photographers, I saw at least 5 together, one had earlier carried his tripod into the trees.
If only he'd known it! By the time this man fetched his tripod/camera and took it into the trees, no birds were at the feeder :(
Another person with posh gear:
Dig the lens on this camera :o

I've only just noticed your post at the top of the page, SANDRA !!! And there was me, thinking I had a coup ;-D It looks like exactly the same scene, feather for feather :o
I just came here because I forgot to post a video from yesterday of a Great Tit with markings gone awry:
Good morning all. First snow of the winter??
Birdies LG DU update.
Indeed Mike. The snow's the star this morning

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
A Crestie was first and last yesterday, and first this morning - the snowy perch didn't bother it:
No fewer birds today, tho a hogging squirrel made for a slow start. For quite a while I thought the Blue Tits were missing but plenty turned up later.
Our mottled Great Tit was back:
And then a Coal Tit similarly but more mildly "afflicted":
Lots of Crestie appearances, this one was a nice strong colour:
Several humans too, dunno what this chap thought he was playing at :-/
A Coat Tit was last in tonight.
Snow's fading. Squirrel isn't
