Coal Tit

Periparus ater


This Coal Tit just wouldn't keep still, he was that busy hopping about from branch to branch, perching for a second then off again! the coal tit has a distinctive grey back, black cap, and white patch at the back of its neck. Its smaller, more slender bill than blue or great tits means it can feed more successfully in conifers


This one was seen in a garden in Derbyshire as they usually favour woods containing conifers, pines, also found in parks and gardens across the UK.
