Hello, has anyone got any ideas as to how I can stop a bird (I think it’s a young long tailed tit) from flying up to our windows, either landing on the frames or hovering near the glass and then tapping on the glass.  It is doing it at various windows and has been going on all day.  We have tried sticking bird silhouettes on the glass but that doesn’t deter it.  It is not after insects as we have given the windows a clean.  Anyone know of anything else we can try please?

Johnny , great pictures , do miss the snow ❄️ , had a dusting end of November and that’s it 

I’m sure the birds 🦅 appreciate the food 

The birds that live in my Hawthorn Edges are not happy since I gave the Hawthorn Tree in the garden a major trim , it’s where I hang the bird feeders
