Deformed Blue Tit

Bill deformities in birds aren't particularly rare but this was the first one I've seen 'in the hand' so to speak. It's a euring code 5 i.e born last year so has managed to survive the harshest winter for 30 years. It probably wouldn't have survived if it wasn't for Barry's feeding stations.

Either that or the male Crossbill(s) at Ness Gardens last spring was putting it around a bit.
