This Long-tailed tit (Aegithalos caudatus) had just landed on the fungus covered perch, hence the waving tail and slightly unfurled wing. Taken in rather unforgiving harsh sunlight (we are never happy, are we?) Wink

Many thanks for your support of yesterdays Robin, with a special thank you to Ron (Maiwand) for doing me the honour of his User Award - very much appreciated Smile

Many thanks, Ron and to everybody for their C&Cs Wink. TIP about perches: collect interesting looking rotting pieces of wood and store them in a damp, sunless place in the garden - they become hosts to all sorts of interesting lichens and fungi Smile

It's been on the wish list for a while, Colin - as Time and Tide wait for no man (or woman), I felt the moment was right Grin

Perhaps just me, being so critical of my own workWink
