Blue Tit ( Cyanistes caeruleus )
With the onset of the dark wet months I am running out of flowers to blip. I have been busy all day with various jobs around home. So I have resorted to shots of birds.
A popular garden bird which fortunately, unlike many species, isn't in decline. With a body weight of about 10g (a little under half an ounce) it can be surprisingly long lived. The record (proved by ringing) is 9 years and 8 days. Blue Tits are found in over 90% of the Uk being missing only from the highest parts of mainland Scotland, the Outer Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland.
