Tora Tora Tora
Yes for the past few days my house has been under constant attack from a pair of Long-tail Tits.
Our house is nothing if not fur coat and no knickers as we only employ a window cleaner to clean the front windows and not the back, but this has an upside as it is great for spiders as they are undisturbed in their conurbation, until that is, the tits decide to build a nest. They collect the web material to cement their fluff ball of a home together. All this endeavour has provided the Cookson household with great entertainment with constant coming and going of fluttering wing beats against the glass.
I have taken advantage of this activity shooting with my 28mm and 70-200mm lenses, but it hasn't been easy as they come in like whippets and dart all over the place, and of course the dirty glass didn't help.
