Counted cross stitch pattern of a long-tailed tit.
Long-tailed tits can be seen in flocks from late summer all through to the next spring, travelling together along hedgerows, through woods and in gardens. They stay together in family groups and often joined by blue tits and great tits. They are a very endearing species wth their small size and rosy plumage. They are also expert crafters - their nests are truly a work of art, made from moss woven together with gossamer.
