Bird Advent calendar – Day 3

Day 3 of my count down to Christmas is the Long Tailed Tit.

This bird visits our garden nearly every day, during the winter, in flocks of 10 to 20 at a time. On our feeders the Long tailed tits just love the fat balls however they are extremely cautious of any danger. They are also quite wary of other birds such as the Great tits and Blue tits and when they are pushed off the feeders by the bigger birds they go and sit in the silver birch tree making lots of noise.

Today I set my hide up and sat about a couple of metres away from the Long tailed tits who were quite unaware that I was there.
