Long-tailed Tits visiting!

Following on from my previous post, a group of 7 Long-tailed Tits were visitors at the Bird Party. I managed to grab a few shots, but the light was dreadful and I had to wack up the ISO more than I wanted.

I also wanted to experiment with Flickr - herewith the results.

Delightful Tricia, maybe the LTTs will come back to my garden soon, I think it was around this time last year they returned.

Tricia said...

Thanks Pete.

Thank Paul - they're such pretty birds.

Jan - I hope they pay you a return visit. Experimenting with Flickr I noticed that I had uploaded a trial picture of a LTT dated 14 Aug 2007. August must be the month!!

You did a great job Tricia.

Tricia said...

Thank you Roy :D

Liz said...

Hi Tricia, how do you link flickr with your blog? Lovely pictures, seeing your Long-tailed tits hopefully will mean that I will see them soon also, they are delightful little birds:-)

Wonderful shots Tricia. What do you have in that feeder, looks like peanuts but seem a bit small.

I'm oh so green with envy! The local flock never comes to my garden.

I admire your patience; they are such difficult birds to photograph.

Then again, getting food in return for a quick pose, might be just the ticket in their minds.

Lovely photos Tricia. I am still waiting for mine to come back.

Janine said...

Great captures!

Liz - Thanks - most welcome visitors indeed.

Lynmiranda - thanks and hopefully you'll have some soon. Re: Flickr - I've sent you an email.

Keith - thank you; they seem to be summer visitors to most gardens.

Richard - aren't they just!

OC - thank you. They are peanuts and I agree, some of them are rather small. Size seems to vary depending on supplier :)

Yoke - aw I'm sorry to don't get them to visit - one day peraps.

John - thank you - I'm sure your patience will be rewarded.

Janine - thanks - yes, real cuties!

NatureStop - thank you :)

Tricia said...

Karen - thank you. I think I'm very lucky to get the great variety of birds that I do.
