Getting the Berry

This is a sequence of images of a Long-tailed Tit which was observed with a group of this species moving along a hedgerow. 

I was fortunate to catch this one deciding which berry to grasp in its claw and then eating it.

  9. Nice series of photos Roy, it is so hard to get sharp shots of these busy little birds, especially in dull winter light, so you must have been doubly pleased to get these pics :-)

    Hope you are well and kindest regards :-)

    PS. Happy New Year :-)
