Long tailed tits and bramblings

In front of my office window there is a nut feeder and out the corner of my eye I suddenly see 6 or more long tailed tits suddenly appear and feed. Just as quick as thery arrive they are gone, perhaps not coming back for several hours or not at all. We also have bramblings around the centre, these are similar in size and shape to the chaffinch, the male has a black head in summer, and an orange breast with white belly. In flight it shows a long white rump. Gregarious in winter, it may form flocks of many thousands and often joins with chaffinches. In the harsh winter conditions we are experiencing it’s nice to see them feeding and we are doing our bit to ensure they survive the winter.
