Blue Tit + Goldcrest?

Spotted a Blue Tit right at the top of a tree next door but as I focussed on the little darling it flew off. Fortunately it returned lower down and in the open, staying there for a while while I took a few shots - almost as though it was posing for me:

A short while before that I had spotted a small bird in a Christmas Tree - one which my neighbour had planted out many years ago. I couldn't get a clear, sharp photo so this record shot has to do. I am reasonably certain it was a Goldcrest:

I have seen one visit on rare occasions in the past.

  2. Love the photos of the Blue Tit, posed just so ~ such a sweet looking bird with its own distinctive markings. The Goldcrest looks similar to the Kinglet we have here. Happy New Year!

    1. Wilma. Could be. I was only a few feet away and in full view but it kept posing.
