Busy blue tits

Brenda writes: “My favourite chair is by a window facing the back garden. Recently I’ve been puzzled by a repeated tapping noise coming from outside. This morning I found out what was causing it as I watched two blue tits working their way along the struts of the greenhouse winkling out, hopefully, tasty morsels from the crevices. Mystery solved.”

ps. Following on from yesterday’s musings, when I arrived at the Scottish house at about 9.30pm this evening the first bird I heard was a tawny owl.
