A BLUE TIT SPENDS 85% OF EVERY DAY IN WINTER LOOKING FOR FOOD

So when you see a Blue Tit flitting about remember that fact and keep (or start) putting bird food out.

Imagine if we had to spend 85% of every winter’s day looking for food.  We can’t imagine it can we?

If food is available on a bird table, a hanging feeder or on the ground the birds will have more energy to see them through the freezing night.  This applies to many birds not just Blue Tits.

Lack of food can made a bird less alert and so more likely to be caught by predators, or if it does not get enough fat to last through the night it may die

Sometimes winter weather looks beautiful, but it hides the harshness of winter
