Great Tit


“Parus Major”





This is our largest uk tit and is green and yellow with white cheeks and a glossy black head.

They eat insects, seeds, and nuts and are quite an aggressive little bird.

They are 14cm in length.

 They have a wingspan of 24cm

 They weigh in at 18g.





This passerine does not migrate unless it is extremely cold.

It nests in cavities where 12 eggs are laid and the female alone does the incubating. They will have 2 broods per year. They prefer protein rich caterpillars in the breeding season.Spiders form a big part of the young ones diet.

 You will often see them in parks and gardens
