Willow Tits- these are such gorgeous little birds, and are now on the Red List due to the recent slump in their population. They are seen rarely in Scotland but do occur in willow and scrubland, especially where it is damp. We watched this one feeding at Potteric Carr near Doncaster yesterday– first time I’ve managed to photograph one. Not much else in the way of bird-life on the reserve at present, due to the mild weather and westerly winds which are keeping European migrants at bay. The warden confirmed there are great Starling murmurations around 4 o’clock at present. Conditions: Gale force winds predicted today, with rain later. Temperature: Max 11- Min 9c.
