Very much the season for Long Tailed Tits right now. I often have seven feeding, managed to get five of them here with some rather unsightly metalwork too Wink

Thanks so much to the folk who left comments and much aporeciated UAs on my Tree Creeper, they are all very much appreciated and encouraging.

P.S just as there is a 'charm' of Goldfinches, did you know a flock of Long Tailed Tits is called a 'volery'? I didn't until recently.

Lucky you Dave. A great picture even with the metalwork. We get them in our trees but they rarely come onto the feeding station. Pam

An amazing capture of your "volery" and wish I could just see one or two; it has been months since they were near here.

A very fine capture of this family of long tailed tits, Dave Smile Can't say I've ever seen any around here, it's just pigeons, starlings & magpies! Wink

A great capture Dave, we normally see the LTT'S but none so far this year, plenty of Goldies though SmileSmileSmile

So many of them Dave and in all different positions. Shows of their feathers from all different angles. Great capture. Debs

I almost missed this one. What a wonderful group photo of the birds! Your garden must be a real haven for all the little creatures.
