Another really great morning spent with Phil in his hide yesterday with the main target once again the beautiful Long-tailed Tits. With some Spring foliage now showing including the Hazel Catkins we were hoping to catch the birds on these to give a springlike feel to the pictures. Although some of the Long-tailed Tits have now moved on there were still frequent visits from smaller numbers of the birds.
With all the recent rain the small amount of water in front of the hide had grown considerably and we had visits from a superb plumaged Moorhen, a bird we all normally ignore, and a Jay that came in for a drink.
Long-tailed Tits. Bottoms Up!!
