A few more from a recent trip.

Is that a giant tadpole the GBH has? It doesn't look like a fish...
Its really hard to tell, maybe a crab or crawfish? Maybe a closeup at full resolution would tell?

Blue Tit, Bearded Tit, ZZ-Tit or just a very orthodox one?

It just looks like its molting. Every bird has two primary molts a year...one for breeding plumage, and one for winter plumage. When they are in the middle of a molt, or just about to molt, they can look a bit raddy and their colors/patterns aren't quite standard. This looks like a Blue Tit to me. Definitely not a Bearded.
Ooops, it was meant as a joke, due to the mouthfull of dog hair that it has in its beak........ :-\

When we brush our dog, in the springtime the hairs go into the feeder shown so birds can take them as nesting material.

Cheers Brian

Great Tit.

And we have another bird whisperer!
Hey thanks for the kind words, and thanks to the others that commented too.
You're very kind.

Here's a Greenfich squabble.

Hi,
pretty gruesome I know but I have a few new shots of a great tit in my garden that has the Avian Pox.
Any donations made I will surely pass on for his medical bills..........

As if life isn't hard enough already. Poor thing?

Cheers

Looks more like his nostril hair to me  :P

Nothing too startling here, just a Siskin Squabble, a lone Siskin, a Robin and a Blue Tit attack:
