Long Tailed Tits need around 2,500 feathers for each nest they build, so, as usual I put some from an old pillow case out this morning and Lynn captured these photos of a pair helping themselves while I was visiting Sian this afternoon. It is great fun to watch them and you help them in their difficult quest for nesting material. Conditions: Rain followed by cloud. Temperature: Max 10 min 3C.
