Coal tit


I have a bird feeder in my garden but I rarely get anything more exciting than blue tits and great tits calling at it. Occasionally a portly wood pigeon tries to balance on it, always rather amusing as they are far too big for it. I sometimes see a robin and wrens in the garden, though rarely on the feeder. Other than that, this part of Saltaire, devoid of large gardens, is not a very good area for birds. When I see bird hides, therefore, I often like to sit and observe what comes and goes. A recent visit to Harlow Carr Gardens' hide also revealed a lot of blue and great tits, a few chaffinches - nothing very exciting. Then a couple of coal tits eventually appeared. They are rather sweet little things, not at all uncommon but still nice to watch.
