Singing Bluetit

By Glostopcat  
A bluetit bursting into song to herald the long overdue arrival of spring at Slimbridge. This little fella was seen sitting in a tree close to the feeders by the Kingfisher Hide and was singing his little heart out. V2 is a Shadow Saturday special of a family of mallards crossing one of the small wooden footbridges at Slimbridge and was taken back in April 2012

V1 is joyful, optimistic. Singing his heart out. But V2 is so cute. I guess I'm in a cute mood today.

Two very well captured images each stuffed with a bucket full of charm and character, however one has to go for image number two, very endearing and so very good.
