Observation - Long-Tailed Tit freshly bathed. Description: I heard the excited chattering of our local long-tailed tits and looking out my first floor study window was treated to the sight of 8 in a line having a wonderful bath in the water logged eaves guttering. Up to their chests in water and splashing happily

I heard the excited chattering of our local long-tailed tits and looking out my first floor study window was treated to the sight of 8 in a line having a wonderful bath in the water logged eaves guttering. Up to their chests in water and splashing happily. Needless to say by the time I'd grabbed my camera there was only 1 left! He may look bedraggled but he was actually a very happy bird. A very good case for remembering that cold and snowy as it is, even at this time of the year birds need water for bathing.
