A great tit!

Life goes on here at Ibarrondo Etxea.

But this morning, soon after I got up, I opened the window that looks over the balcony and there it was, a great tit hanging upside down from the handrail, pecking at the gossamer and cobwebs. My heart stopped for a few moments, I promise, while I tried to decide whether to keep holding my breath to avoid scaring the little creature or to move a little bit to get a better perspective. I think it was only a few seconds until it flew away, but, after four years without sighting one, it felt almost like the first time.

    It had to be a bird, I couldn’t imagine a breast hanging out in that weather

    I think it was Simon Barnes who used to call great tits “Dolly Partons”. Only guys over 35 will understand.
