I’ve spotted some lovely little long-tailed tits in the trees this week! They are such sweet little birds, so pretty and agile…

It inspired me to revisit my Lovely Little Long-tailed Tits artwork from 2016… one of my favourites…

This artwork was inspired by watching long-tailed tits feeding amongst the branches on my daily dog walk in the fields near my home. It’s great to watch these lovely little birds in the trees…

And even better to learn some of their old folk names…

Did you know that a long-tailed tit used to be known (amongst other names) by:

  • Hedge Mumruffin

  • Bum Barrel

  • Fuffit

  • Poke Pudding

  • Prinpriddle

  • Millithrum

Cool, huh? It seems a shame that we’ve lost some of these very interesting names, these days!

I always think the colours on this are really rich and warm - perfect for these cold winter days when you see the long-tailed tits fluff their feathers up so prettily!

If you like my long-tailed tits artwork, you can get it in my print store…

Also as a scarf, cushion, mug, clock, notebook and more here…
