Long-Tailed Tit

Long-Tailed Tit

Long-tailed tits are one of the most adorable British birds and in winter you will see them form flocks, sometimes with other species of tits, of up to 50 birds.

They are tiny, pink, black and white birds with black tails that are longer than their bodies. During the day you can spot these excitable little birds flitting through trees and shrubs. At night they will roost huddled together to keep warm.

Long-tailed tits are master nest builders. They create nests made from moss, hair, feathers and cobwebs which are elastic and expand around their growing chicks. A large long-tailed tit’s nest can contain up to 5,000 feathers.
