Just waiting for a flight to catch some rubbish-tip gulls on Guernsey (more on this later) when this landed in my inbox.
So smoking is pretty bad for your health, but these Blue Tits seem to have completely ignored the best medical advice.
This pair, in Wallsend, Tyne & Wear, found an outdoor ashtray to their liking. Their quality residence is Oceana Business Park where the pair have stalled building works. It'll be interesting to see how they do but they obviously have hungry mouths to feed.
To see how Blue Tits are doing nationally, check out the BTO's Nestbox Challenge.
