Long-tailed Tits.

I was in my usual happy trance like state as I was bird watching, sat in a hide, sun on my face entranced by the gorgeous shovel ducks sifting through the mud when I occasionally noticed a flutter to my left.

so I had a look. Do you see anything?Now do you see anything?

A pair of Long-tailed tits bringing moss to make their nest deep in the middle of hedge, in a few days when the leaves sprout, you may well not even see this.  They were very amusing to watching bringing in nesting material of moss and other delicate objects, I think the last photo might be the tastiest of grubs to give to a mate. 

And the pair are very fastidious as to how the moss should be arranged, a great deal of effort is spent rearranging the moss.

They were almost impossible to photograph being so quick. I’ve learn’t to back button focus to try and capture these beautiful little birds.

I’ll keep trying, I’d love to get a nice clean shot of one of these little beauties.
