190218 Great tit

‘The laser-sharp chants of great tits’ is how Brett Westwood describes the sounds these enchanting little birds sing out as the fever of spring begins to take hold and they vie with each other to advertise their charms and attract a mate. I think, however, that this little one’s chirping at me today was more about food than anything else.
