This bird visits infrequently over the last three or four months. It doesn't hang about, which is why the poor photo (through a window with max telephoto extension).

azure tit?

Could it be an azure tit?

What a thought!

A lovely thought, but this is just an unusual Blue Tit. A genuine Azure Tit would cause an immense twitch...even I would resume my former twitching days and go for it!!

Azure Tit has a dark stripe through the eye, like Blue Tit, so doesn't fit anyway.
