Long tailed tits- otherwise known as bum barrels!

Plenty of these delightful Long Tailed Tits around today- they are very common in Sheffield and being studied in  the nearby Rivelin Valley urban park. The research has shown that, if one pair’s nest is destroyed, they will help another pair raise their young.

Conditions:  Sunny day with rain later. Temperature: Max 8 – Min 2. Temperatures in Minnesota yesterday sank to -37c, lower than experienced on the red planet by the Mars Rover. Apparently, England’s coldest ever temperature stands at -26c, experienced in the Midlands in 1982.
