    Blue tits are my favourite type of birds they are consistantly coming to our feeders! Also did you know a blue tit weighs the same amount to a cookie!

    We hung some bird feeders on our acer tree, and now we have loads of blue tits coming to our garden! There was a tiny baby one there a few days ago calling for its parents. I think it was just a fledgeling!

    I think blue tits are great. They used to come to my garden all the time, but now i only see the odd one. I am so sad because they added a bit more colour to my garden.
