Not easy to see but the beak on this one is very long and curved upward and to the side. It's still displaying very blue tit like behaviour of pecking at the suet block and cakes and taking a piece of food to a branch to hold it while it eats. Also it's been cleaning it off on a branch as the regular tits do with their beaks after feeding, so it seems to be fully functional!

Very pleased that the great tit has returned. Not a great pic but he's a real cutie.

Cleared all the ivy off the tree trunk as it was looking really choked up and I was so glad I did because I was rewarded almost immediately with the Blue Tit and then the Coal Tit returning to peck insects off the trunk. It's so much easier to photograph them too without the ivy confusing the autofocussing behind.

The pretty cottages near the harbour. We walked down there but it got windier and windier till we could hardly stand up!

Got this lovely picture of a Dunnock in the tree very close to me. Felt almost guilty at being in the garden as it was giving constant warning calls to frighten me away from it's nest which was close by.I'm starting to attract the feral pigeons now - previously they stayed on the rooftops and such. I really don't mind them - these are very healthy looking and really quite handsome birds and not too aggressive towards the smaller ones.

As you can see, this individual is very brown, with a small amount of mottling on the breast and no eye ring.

Laid down and fanned out wings.
