'lost' Coal Tit

'lost' Coal Tit


Postby Tinto63 » Sat Jul 17, 2021 9:42 pm

I was out on Broad Law today and spotted this coal tit on the hillside at about 770m. Quite a long way from its typical habitat...but it seemed quite happy foraging in the grass.

I don't carry a camera with a zoom lens, so have had to severely crop the second photo, which was taken 3 seconds after the first.

Agree, that is an unusual sighting. Perhaps good weather encouraged it to move higher up the hill.
