After lunch , I went for a stroll on the Common . Once again , there were good numbers of Comma and Brimstone , and one Peacock . I headed over to the one of the Gorse areas , and once again heard and saw the Long Tailed Tits . I stood and watched them for a while as they collected feathers and flew back into the Gorse . I followed them , and eventually located the nestsite . It was right in the middle and right at the top of the Gorse patch . There was just one spot on the outside where the entrance to the nest could be seen , so I set the camera up on the monopod and waited . Eventually , after a few failed attempts , I managed to get a few shots of a new species - the Moustacheoed Tit . They showed no interest in me and just carried on with the job in hand . On the way back to the car , I had another attempt at a Goldcrest , but once again came up well short with the result .Clearing glades for reptiles up on the Greensand Ridge tomorrow using chainsaws . Doesn't sound promising , but we will have breaks .
