Blue Tit Bathing

After some overnight rain the other day my husband and I were sitting outside on our conservatory doorstep, having a peaceful cup of tea while surveying the back garden.

My husband suddenly flinched, and commented that he though the rain was starting again as he thought he felt a few drops fall on his head. We looked up at the sky and all was blue and clear, not a cloud in sight, so feeling a bit puzzled we just sat tight and carried on drinking our tea.

And then I felt it too, little light splashes on my head and arms – I looked up quickly and there in the conservatory guttering immediately above us was a little Blue Tit taking a bath, spraying us with tiny water droplets as he shook out his feathers.

We laughed and moved to sit elsewhere, leaving him to it – but I guess we better check our guttering soon to remove whatever is blocking it to make sure all the rainwater can flow away freely 🙂
