We seem to have a Blue Tit today that isn't blue.

Amazing how nature turns the odd one out, now and again.

We've had a blue tit with a white head coming round for a few weeks, not seen it recently though.

Hi,

Mr Pawty says it's a leucistic blue tit... (Having whitish plumage due to lack of pigment ). You learn something new every day!

Looks as if it's a blue tit that had a naughty night out with a nuthatch.

We have a rook that seems to be able to only make trim phone noises. It's very sad as he's been calling his funny noise all year and there are no other rooks replying, although there are plenty about. Feel so sorry for him. It's the only noise he makes - we see him on our roof and in the surrounding area trying to chat with the others but he's a real Billy No Mates.
