We spotted a lone long-tailed tit in the garden last night. This situation always seems wrong to us and makes the world feel unbalanced - these little chaps need to be in gangs! After the coldest night of the winter, we were relieved to see it zipping around the garden this morning, but still by itself. So I've posted a lonely heart advert with portrait (ignore the yellow one, he already has pals) in the hope that other long-tailed tits read this blog.
Cute chick, non-smoker, gsoh, bit of a babe, with exteremely long tail, likes blowing raspberries. Looking for flock to have fun with.
We were delighted to discover that a Long-tailed Tit had popped into the garden for a visit this morning. But a Long-tailed Tit on its own is simply wrong - they should be in a gang bustling their way through hedge and garden, blowing raspberries as they go about their business.
I just had time to make a few scribbled notes before our little friend was gone in a blurr of wings. 'Birds of feather', foremost in my mind.
