|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
Not as colourful as some of its relatives, the coal tit has a distinctive grey back, black cap, and white patch at the back of its neck. Its smaller, more slender bill than blue or great tits means it can feed more successfully in conifers. A regular visitor to most peanut feeders, they will take and store food for eating later. In winter they join with other tits to form flocks which roam through woodlands and gardens in search of food.
Where to see them
Woodland, especially conifer woods, parks and gardens.
When to see them
All year round.
What they eat
Insects, seeds and nuts.
UK breeding 653,000 territories
Great weather again in the uk today, managed to capture this coal tit as it was coming into land.
Did not quite freeze the wings but it has a good sense of movement.
handheld and shot in jpeg cropped and resized for tn
thanks for looking.

Nice action shot - these little guys are quick and hard to capture. I like the exposure and the reflection on the eye. It is difficult to get their eyes to show up against the black feathers. That lens makes a nice bokeh too.
