Long-tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus): a graceful and welcome family group in the garden.

Even though House Sparrow groups are generally common sights in our gardens there is something different about the gathering of Long-tailed Tits (Aegithalos caudatus) when they visit. Their delicate calls and looping flight are a pleasure to see but it is their togetherness that highlights a difference to the other species. There is something about the invisible bond between each member of the group, or volery , that can almost be felt when you see them moving around the garden. I have often tried to get photographs and this was my best chance as they kept returning to the feeders over the course of about an hour.
