Jeni Bell’s Wild Britain – The Great tit returns

The continued adventures Of Jeni , Bill and Millie……..

words by Jeni Bell

“Teacher, teacher, teacher, teacher.”

No – that’s not the cry of an overly keen student, arm shot high and bursting with answers. Not one bit. This is the noise that distracted me from my desk this morning, it’s persistent nature, and catchy cadence called to me from the garden. Forced me to stop whatever it was I was doing (probably admin, so I wasn’t looking too hard for a break) and cast my eyes to the source of the sound.

The great tit has returned.

There on the fence was a sparrow sized bird, with a black cap and belly strip. A plump little thing, with a lot to say for itself (I have quite the affinity with these creatures), was hopping along the thin stretch of wood that separates us from next door. It flit back and forth like it was charged with an electrical current; fizzing from the fence, to the swing, then back again, before landing on the washing line – unable to stay still for more than a moment.
