One of two Long tailed tits popped past...

I took this pic during the week, as you know they are such flitty little birds they don’t sit still for a minute. So, this pic is the ‘best’ of about a dozen! ☺️

Great shot,K.....we have about 6 or 7 of them dancing infront of the garden mirror making such a noise...they can obviously see their reflections.I do love them.

Thanks Ange! I was so pleased to see this pair - although I think probably just passing through. Haven’t seen them this weekend..

Aw thanks Julia! It is difficult to take a pic of these little things! They are so quick on the move! It must be lovely to have 6 or 7 in the garden - I can only imagine they look adorable dancing in front of the mirror!!!

we regularly get 6-8 of them but like most of you they don't stay still long enough for a decent photo. Thank heaven for digital cameras.

Lovely to see a whole little group of them , Eileen! I wish we had them more often too! Yes, we are lucky to have pretty good technology nowadays .

One day in our last (big) garden, OH ran to get me to go up to the hidden rubbishy corner, and there were TEN long-tail chicks in a line on a branch. We were just in time to see them fledge. Memorable moment, but the only pic is in my head!

Aw that must’ve been a really lovely sight to see, Sheila! It is those moments we think, where’s the camera!!!! Still, you’ve the smashing memories of seeing those little fledglings..

Oh my favourite small bird Kate and what a fabulous shot. You did well to get it, they're soon off aren't they?
I do get flocks of them down the garden but never manage a pic, well done!

Thank you Janey! Yes, we see them fleetingly. Wish they stayed around a bit longer!

I found out that in some UK areas they were called flying lollipops!

That's very apt Sbg..haha. Those great long stick tails. I wonder why they need such long ones, all to do with balance. Maybe they help to fly straight!

I think that’s quite a ‘sweet’ name ☺️
