There have been great photos of birds in many blogs recently. Compared with those, my results may look rather modest, especially technically, but my models are really cute. This great tit (Parus major) seems to be inspecting the premises.
During the summer months, we don't really see them, but in winter they are common visitors around bird feeders.

The willow tit (Parus montanus/Poecile montanus) has always been my favourite bird:
This photo too was taken through a window. I wanted to show it, because it's one of my first ones and definitely my best photo of a wood nuthatch or Eurasian nuthatch (Sitta europaea), here nonchalantly descending a tree head first:
