    Blue Tits / Great Tits

    On the same theme but a different tack, yesterday I went for a walk and found an area where there was an abundance of Long Tailed Tits. Unfortunately I couldn't get close enough to get a good picture but I got these for now. I'll go back again hopefully to get better shots! http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i135/ric...Canyouseeme.jpg http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i135/ric...ngTailedTit.jpg

    Blue Tits / Great Tits

    As if on cue, I saw the first Blue Tit chicks this morning. Instead of the usual eight to ten there were only about four as far as I could see. I don't think there is any doubt that our really dreadful weather has accounted for a lot of this years chicks. I took the attached pics this morning. I have been rather concerned about a nest of Eastern Rosellas I have. The hen adopted her usual practice of leaving the chicks for ever increasing periods regardless of the state of the weather. No doubt wild birds do the same? However, they survived and are making enough noise for birds double their size! Ps The Coal Tit whose picture appers on this posting is still visiting my garden. http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i135/ric...itingforMum.jpg http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i135/ric...13/OpenWide.jpg
