Blue Tit Parus caeruleus (3). The only British and Irish bird with a substantial amount of blue in its plumage. Generally the commonest tit, with the same distribution as the Great Tit. Most familiar call a churring tsee tsee tsee tsit. Like most tits it nests in a hole in a tree or building and readily takes to nest boxes. 11-12cm.


Bluebell Hyacinthoides non-scriptus (1) is a very familiar short, bulbous perennial, which produces clumps of narrow, keeled leaves and a single, long, leafless, 1-sided spike of bright-blue bell-shaped flowers, 15-20mm, with creamy anthers; April to June. Common in woods, often forming huge colonies on well-drained soils; also in the open, in upland grassland and on sea-cliffs. Spanish Bluebell Hhispanicus is the garden species, with an upright spike of larger, blue-anthered flowers.
