Long-tailed tits

Seem to have thrived in the last few years, I think the RSPB Garden Birdwatch suggests this too.

Thriving

I believe this is linked in to the fact that they breed earlier, about March-April. In recent years there has been bad weather (including flooding) during the prime nesting period for most other birds which long-tailed tits may have been able to avoid. Juvelines will have already fledged the nest with increased chances of survival. Anyway that's just one theory.
