Some bird pictures and Challenges

Morning all.

I was sitting at my craft table Friday and there were lots of blue, long tailed & great tits in my garden. They were drinking the drops of water from my Acer. I only manages to get these two blue tits as they were all moving so fast, Its been a long tone since I have taken any pictures of birds.

Had a funny day yesterday I had three phone calls in a row and that is an unusual thing,one was from a Pal and she asked if it was OK to come over and of course I said yes as I really like company and its always nice to see people. She stayed till 6 PM and we had a great chat and catch up.
