Only once had LTT in the garden. About six came into the preanuts, had a quick peck for a couple of seconds and flew off. Haven't been back since. Plenty in the local areas.

Eight LTTs just been in feeding. They are not in every day but once, twice a week now. Always turn up when you don't expect them. They seem to love the fat balls.

Same here ! I had a session cleaning the feeders and was rewarded with a family of 5 LTT's about an hour later :clap:

LTTs in everyday now. Numbers anywhere between 2 to 8. Seen lots of larger flock in the area.

We see them every so often but only in small flocks of about 5 or so. During th Winter we had larger flocks of 10 or more. Managed to get a few shots earlier in the week.
