Long-Tailed Tit and Budding Tree

I love these little birds – they flit about in gangs, tweet-tweeting, you just suddenly become aware of them in bushes, recognise them by their long tails. I think I must have seen them when I was a child, just the sight of them and the sound of them gives me a pleasure I can’t really explain. I see wonderful portraits of birds on the Internet, and this is just a snapshot, but I was glad to get a picture of the creature before it darted away. I put long-tailed tits on the cover of a book called The Mouse of Gold, really because I think the birds are so pretty it was fun to paint them. This is a Spring picture.
