Coal Tit - Parus ater

The is our smallest tit, and although much more shy than the great or blue tit, is readily attracted to both peanuts and seeds in feeders.

It will use nest boxes happily, although its numbers are less affected by the availability of natural tree hole sites since it will also choose holes in banks and tree roots.

Lays six to ten eggs, white speckled red-brown, April to may. Sometimes two broods. Incubation takes fourteen days, fledging about sixteen days later.
