The Long Tailed Tit ( aegithalos caudatus )
Have not had too much luck sighting these so far this year so I was pleased to get this rather smart example whilst on a visit to WWT Arundel. Hardly still for a second but a lovely little bird.
I hope you will like it and will have time for the large view.
As always my grateful thanks to all who had time to to view/comment or vote on the Little Grebe.

Super shot Ron, love the footwork too. A couple visit a bush outside my shed door quite regularly, but with Gills and my daughters cats I have no chance. Anyone know how to get rid of them without me getting the blame??? The cats that is!

WOW what stunning detail in that! Absolutely beautiful! I have these sweet little birds visit the bush outside my window in the evenings, a whole little family playing together. It's lovely to see Smile I wish I could see them in the day and take a photograph as perfect as this. Fantastic focussing and you can see its eyelid! Have my award - again Smile
