this cute little blue tit spent half an hour today taking bits and pieces from a hanging basket liner
obviously for nest building. He tugged and pulled, and pulled and tugged until he got the piece out that he wanted. I hope is keeps their chicks snug and warm.

fab photos, cheryl, as ever :-)

i'm having trouble trying to capture the bluetits on our feeder.. they don't sit still long enough for me to get a photo!

I know they buzz around so quickly don't they, hedgewitch, I had watched this one for ages as soon as I got the camera out wooosh he was gone. He did come back though and I just took a quick snap, hence why it is a little blurred.

Cheryl, fascinating photos as always! We are getting a down pour today and tomorrow..chances for flooding. But not to worry, we are pretty safe right here. I am going to keep tabs on you, Lisa, and the bee saga. I find it very interesting!

Yes it should be fun re the bees.

Birds work SO HARD. I'm amazed at their strength. That's why we feed them. Your photos are great.
