    Just sat in the van getting some work done before lunch and all of a sudden there was quite a lot of noise outside the van. I looked out the window and there were literally 30+ Great Tits and I think a few Blue Tits all whizzing about. Some of them have gone now but the rest are still flitting about and giving me some excellent entertainment (y)

    I tried to get some picture but as soon as I open the window they bugger off. Too cold to leave it open.
    Also my phone makes for a lousy camera :(

    Had been watching the same flight path for a few days and set the tripod up and took rapid remote pics while hiding. :)

    Here's a pair in flight. Take note of their perfect geometry, and the way they swoop and lift together. :)
