Young Coal Tits differ in colour from adults. These photo’s show how their underparts, cheeks, wing-bars and nape are more yellow whereas as in adults the cheeks, wing-bars and nape become white and the underparts more buff. We have seen at least four young in the garden this year, a good number for us. These, the smallest of the Tits that visit us, have small, thin beaks which allow them to feed on conifers, but in our patch they love the sunflower seeds and fat bars. Conditions: Cloudy, showery day. Temperature: Max 18- Min 13c.
