The LTT Gang

Generally at this time of year if you see one Long-tailed Tit you will most likely see a dozen moving through the trees eating insects etc as they go along. 

I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time last week to see a group on the move.
As always they are a delight to watch and never keep still for more than a second or two.

  5. Some lovely captures Roy. I see the LTT gang during the winter months on my nutfeeder, they must do the rounds because they tend to show up about the same time each day, about four o'clock in the afternoon. They haven't as yet appeared in my garden this year.

  8. Super photos of a very sweet little bird Roy. And in answer to your comment, no, not too many cream teas, sad to say ;)

  9. I love these little birds, you can hear them long before they arrive in the garden. I used to see a family on my walk to work years ago, they even had their nests quite close to the fence and I would see them snuggling up together. Beautiful shots.

    1. Thanks Suzie, yes they are very gregarious and several families join together to look after each other, especially at night during the winter.

  10. Great shots Roy, it's always a pleasure to see and to listen to the 'chatter' as a gang of these little beauties move through the trees...[;o)
