12 Days of Christmas – 2022


Day 6: Great Tit


It’s mid-April 2022, just before we open up fully and I put a camera on a dead leveret that I’d found.

I was hoping for an opportunist fox, or pine marten, to visit so I could see what might happen.

What I didn’t expect to see was a great tit harvesting the baby hare’s fur. Very little seems to go to waste in nature 🙂.

The great tit came back again and again over a number of days stripping away most of the fur. I can only imagine how cosy the nest was in the end!

While we are used to seeing great tits at our winter feeding stations, it was nice to see breeding season behaviour 🙂.

Anyway, enjoy the snippet.. 🙂
