Vocal now as one of the first birds to start singing, looking for a mate, calling ‘teacher, teacher’, a distinctive two-syllable song

The largest of the Tit family, a striking bird with its vibrant green/yellow body and glossy black head, it looks as if it is wearing a yellow shirt with a black tie and cap

A woodland bird that has adapted to more urban habitat, often seen in our gardens and parks and a regular visitor to any bird tables

A common bird with an estimated population of over two million

Great Tits are cavity nesters, meaning they build nests in holes within trees or other surfaces, although they will happily use nest boxes. Laying up to seven to nine eggs in April or May, the chicks will hatch after about two weeks and fledge up to three weeks later
