This small tit is supposedly endemic to China, however it has been recorded at least four time in Japan.

This one has taken up winter residence at Kasuga Park, Fukuoka, and has attracted birders from all over the country. It is very small and also very agile and active – it never sits still!

I was fortunate to come away with some acceptable images, as it only showed for a while before moving into thick woods and disappearing.

Other birds in the park were , , Common Magpie, and Japanese White-eye, but I missed the flock of Japanese Waxwing that were observed the week before…
