Juvenile Long-tailed Tits have been in short supply on our feeders this summer, which may be because of the wet spring (remember?!) which adversely affects their survival. This small group turned up though- I love the red ring round their eyes. More closely related to Indian Babblers than to Tits, they often appear in mixed flocks with Blue and Great Tits. Long-tailed Tits have such small bodies that they stay in small flocks in order to help keep each other warm, sitting close together on branches through the colder nights. Overall, their numbers are increasing, especially in urban areas. Conditions: cloud and sun, with light rain forecast for a while. Temperature: Max 22 Min 13 C.
