I had just one flying visit from a group of long tailed tits a couple of years ago. Never seen them here before or since and I have feeders up all year. No other gardens or feeders nearby but we are surrounded by arable and pastureland and have woods nearby so maybe they don't need my feeders.
We have local buzzards who use the thermals over the field behind to teach their youngsters about flying. Lots of mewing and whirling.
Very quiet in the garden this morning but the riding school over the way has put its ponies and most of the horses in the paddocks opposite so they can air the boxes and they're great fun to watch as they skit about.
