Robin V Coal Tit

Thanks for sending this lovely description of bird watching and bird feeding. 

Early evening I watched as a coal tit kept trying to grab a sunflower seed from the bird table.

The table was occupied by a robin which kept chasing the tit away but the coal tit did not stop trying until it had got its sunflower seed. It just kept trying from different directions.

You think a robin is a small bird until you see a tiny coal tit next to one. This tit was not going to be bullied out of its supper.

I could have cheered out loud when it succeeded!

I noticed that the number of squabbling starlings has increased here over the past couple of days.
