I have been mesmerised so far this summer by the number of blue or great tits, blackbirds and sparrows in the garden. I've always had a fair few but this year they seem much tamer and hop and play around for hours on end. Well actually they seem to have very regular feeding bursts then go away for an hour or so and come back full of life regularly all day long. It's too hot to do much in the way of gardening so I find myself sitting with the conservatory doors wide open completely enraptured
taking photos and they are incredibly obliging when it comes to posing.
