The Blue Tit


Decided today that I would try and take some shots of birds in the garden. It is really cold and damp, so it wasn't a really good idea. I did manage to get four reasonable photographs, although I do find birds quite difficult to capture. We have lots of this little bird in the garden, and he certainly is colourful and brightens even the dullest day.
Our local Sparrowhawk also loves him. I have seen many a blue tit in the claws of these fighter pilots. The cries the poor little creature gives out haunts me for days. But then that is the way of things and I accept that, I just don't need to see it.

Hello Cheryl, we have some feeders up to but I find it hard to capture the birds on camera :-) Today I have come home and found too many feathers on the lawn - we had a fox in the garden a while back at midday and I wonder if the cold has brought him around again. Stay warm :-)

Hi Chris
Havn't seen our fox for a while. He usually takes the larger birds, especially next doors doves.
I have just lit a log fire and am sitting in front of it as I type to you. Mmmmmmmmm
