Petmania Coal Tit

What do they eat?

They like insects, seeds and nuts- you will often notice them prising peanuts from your feeders and flying away with them to store them for later!

Where do they nest?

Coal tits will nest in cavities in a tree or wall but will also happily set up home in a nestbox in your garden.
