Not much light around today but I thought it was worth sharing this image of one of our many Coal Tits. You can just about see the white nape on its head.

Coal tit

Nice picture - I have been trying to photograph coal tits but they are too quick for me at them moment

They do move fast, don't they? For every success there are nearly always several failures. Good job I finally gave up film.

Taking photos of moving birds

Hi Petej

Try setting your camera to take repeated shots (as long as the shutter is pressed) - You'll end up with lots of photos of the same thing but it is much easier to get a decent shot of a moving bird.
