Bird of the Month - Christmas 2016

Despite being such a common garden bird in the U.K., the Blue Tit is quite rare here in Mallorca, they only frequent the mountains and higher places in the north.

There have been a few records recently from lower levels but only in the north of the Island. I kept all records and published my findings on the internet complete with a map showing all known locations.

A few days ago whilst talking to my next door neighbour in Porto Petro, I told her about the Blue Tits. She looked at me quizzically and told me that she has been feeding them in her garden for some years now.

Oh dear, I think I will keep that quiet. Merry Christmas.
