A welcome visitor to the garden today was a Coal Tit (Periparus ater) - I hadn't seen one all Summer long. Tricky little devils to catch as they are so quick!

My thanks to all who commented on yesterday's upload and a special thank you to Ann (Pluckyfilly) for her User Award Smile

Well, you've caught this one to perfection, Sylvia: immaculate plumage detail and with the bird showing up so well against that b/g.

Nicely detailed Great Tit Sylvia,
Well exposed with good detail in the bird and a rather unusual perch that makes this one slightly different from the normal images we see.
