Coal tit. The Coal Tit is another bird that can often be seen in our gardens. They are right little characters found mainly in coniferous woodland but not exclusively.  Several species of tit have a bold black and white face pattern but only the Coal Tit has this neat white stripe down its nape. The cold grey colour on its back is another of its distinguishing features.
