Photographing Long Tailed Tits
Saturday at the new hide was fun. Watching Long Tailed Tits is like seeing a group of teenagers. You can hear them coming, laughing, shouting, then you see them, they're messing around, chasing each other making maximum noise, then they're gone! All that's left is the distant shouts, screams and laughter
The Long Tailed Tit is much the same, you hear them before you see them, that's the cue to be ready, then out of nowhere they turn up En Masse. They flit from one spot to another, chirping all the while, then gone! Just like that, they disappear and all that's left is the distant chirps.
There aren't quite the amount i would like at the hide at the moment, I was only getting 2 at a time, but that increased to 4 last weekend, so they're beginning to discover the feeders now. One thing is for sure, they're more than happy to land on any perch i put up, like this Blackthorn and others
I have to admit, I'm looking forward to utilising all the May Blossom and other colourful Spring blooms in the coming weeks, just maybe the other birds would like to use them as well
