Long-tailed tits

Thursday's Guardian Country Diary is all about this flock of long-tailed tits, that suddenly appeared around me on a very cold winter afternoon - and brightened up my day.

  3. Got to be my favourite bird, they make me think of noisy giggly school girls piling out of the school gates, such chatter. Just spent a chilly hour, putting up a owl box, I know we are a bit late, but it was the best we could do.

    1. That's exactly what comes to mind when I hear them! Hope you get a tenant for your owl box. We sometimes get tawnies hunting across out row of back gardens - love to hear their hunting calls.
