Long-tailed tits

These little balls of pinky-white fluff with long dark tails are constantly on the move in small family groups.

You may not see them at first but you may hear their high-pitched squeaks "dibbedy-dee"   "dibbedy-dee", which they use to keep together.
 
They have tiny beaks, bushy black eyebrows and 'peppercorn eyes'.

We know that they nest at Filnore Woods because we found a nest in the brambles.  See the post for 29th March 2012.
