Lovely picture Dave, It's that time of the year when spring is just round the corner, and all the birds are courting and singing. I have two nest boxes in my garden, and Tits (parus caeruleus) have used them in the past years. Its important we encourage birds to our gardens because of the decline in population of all birds. Tits are mostly found in deciduous woods, especially (oak) parks and gardens in all areas including cities. Birds like the blue tits, bring any garden to life.

Great. How did you get so close with a wide lens ?. They won't keep still. I get sharp bodies and blurred heads . The little blighters.

Ron - I took this at 500mm - I was about 15 feet away.
