It's good to see Linnets back on our 'patch' at the East Weares, Portland. Here's one at dawn (in entirely natural light) this morning:

Below: the Long-tailed Tit is frequently seen in family parties on the Weares in late summer and autumn, but 'never' in the lead up to, or at the height of the breeding season, (by us at least!), until today. Like Bullfinches, they become highly elusive. I saw two, just after dawn today.
