Seeing this Great Tit with a whole peanut made me realise my mistake of putting out whole peanuts mixed in with the bird seed for the birds to eat from the balcony of the bungalow while on holiday in Scotland!!! I cringed when I thought of the feeding of chicks with whole peanuts! I reckon the birds have more sense though, well hopefully! The peanuts were to entice the Red Squirrels. I later bought monkey nuts for the Squirrels and ceased putting the loose nuts out for the birdies!
