[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot from Kensington Gardens, London, taken back in January this year when the birds were hungry and happy to get up close and personal. This time it's another one of the UK's most familiar garden birds, the Great Tit.


The Great Tit (Parus major) is a widespread and common UK garden bird. It is easy to recognise, it's yellow chest having a black band running down the middle. This band is broader in male birds. In certain built-up areas (like Central London!), Great Tits can become used to humans.
