This video of the ever present Blue tit was taken in August 2010 just during a period of Blue tit feeding frenzy in our green covered bird table.

Unusually, this Blue tit stayed on the feeder for at least a minute. Normally it would be a fly on - fly off scenario!! But it is a good shot and you can see another Blue tit hanging on the outside on the right.
