Greetings from Finland

This place is a tit watchers paradise, and I haven't even hit the Sauna yet <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

I managed to collect the full set in a an afternoon, including great, blue, coal, crested, and willow!

When I thaw out I will write a more comprehensive tit report :)

I'm envious, Mossie, I never saw a Willow Tit when I lived in the UK. I used to get Bluetit, Great Tit and Coal Tit in my garden in Edinburgh and saw Long Tailed Tit in the woods near my house, but never saw Willow Tits.

In the UK some people take a coconut and slice it in half and hang it from a tree in their garden to attract birds. This gave rise to the slogan some birders used to have on their T-shirts which was: Great Tits like coconuts. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

Looking forward to your full report.

You should get out birding more often Abe! Lots of tits at Barokalalo - go in summer though when it is warmer <!-- s:rotfl: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/rotfl.gif" alt=":rotfl:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:rotfl: -->
