Today was a pretty good day for birds. I have always thought that it’s much harder to get pictures of birds in Japan than in the UK. There are few bird tables around and I think that this makes the birds much more elusive. When I do see them, they tend to be flitting around in the trees or dense vegetation, and it’s hard to get a clear shot. I was therefore very happy to watch this great tit from up close.
