Coal Tits

Coal Tits are not found in every garden, as they prefer to be near conifer trees. They move very quickly and suddenly, so the photographer needs to be fully prepared and alert for one to arrive. When several small sized Tits arrive at the desired perch, quickly pick out one with two whitish wing bars - the Coal Tit. It is extremely difficult to get shots of such small fast moving birds in flight without flash.
