Brace of beauties

With the grey having dissipated and the autumn sunshine back, I took an hour out in the garden at lunchtime. This Coal Tit and Blue Tit were the highlights, along with a fleeting glimpse of my first Wren in the garden itself.

  2. The Coal Tit has a fierce eye! Wrens always amaze me with the volume of their song for such a tiny bird.

  3. Amazing clarity on the Coal Tit Tim and you have been able to draw the viewers eye to the Blue Tit, even though it is surrounded with branches to the foreground.
