Bird of the week: Long-Tailed Tit

This week's bird of the week is the Long-Tailed Tit. The Long-Tailed Tit is a small bird which looks like a little ball of fluff with a very long tail! Usually seen in flocks, they are very noisy and have a very distinctive flight pattern. Their colouring is very recognisable and they're widespread across the uk.  

The Long-tailed Tits nest is made of spider's webs, moss, feathers and lichen and is normally built in a bush, hedge, tree or brambles. Their diet is insects, spiders and also berries and you can also see them on feeders. 

My Experiences

I normally see them at Warnham Local Nature Reserve on the feeders or flitting around the trees in flocks of about 10. I can always tell them apart from the other birds because of their flight pattern.
