I have only ever seen a pair of Long tailed tits, though they generally fly in groups. BUT I have just been rewarded with FIVE of them going for the last bit of fatball. They beat off the greenfinches and starlings !
Piccies taken through a dirty double glazed window, so not brilliant :lol:

Wonderful, have them in the garden, but in the summer, plenty of greenfinches here at the moment.

Such pretty birds ... one of my favourites.

We have dozens and dozens of greenfinches here, who dominate the smaller birds. A few blue tits and great tits but the more feeders I put out, the more greenfinches there are. The sparrows like their seed in large saucers and with the finches, mop up whatever has been dumped out of the feeders in their frenzy to get stuck in !

The starlings love the peanuts and one of the feeders collapsed under their weight this morning !
