Blue Tit

By Maiwand
The Blue Tit (parus caeruleus )
Read a report in todays paper that these rather nice little birds are a bit scarce this year. Is that the opinion of others as well? This is one that I did manage to capture recently and he/she certainly appears to be in good condition.
I hope you will enjoy and will have time for the large view.
I thank those who managed to find time to visit the Sedge Warbler. I really do appreciate it.

Not scarce in the South East as far as I know - I've seen loads and loads of these little beauties this year including a lot of juveniles. Lovely shot!

That bg shows this little bird's plumage colours off very nicely Ron, a great image.
With reference to your comments on this bird's scarcity this year is something I noticed a lot in the early part of the year. I put food out for them, and it was still there days later.
That said, I saw about 50 fly into the garden this morning in a very short period, so maybe they have been on holiday Smile

Superb capture Ron, i read that in the paper all so but there are still plenty at my feeders. Gary

That is one stunning shot. Bred in our garden this year but since then scarce, probably a lot of food around in general so no need to fight with the Goldfinches.
