Yes this one is a Blue Tit!!, a nice capture of this small bird and considering the 1/10th shutter speed and such a long focal length is reasonably sharp.
Cheers Steve

Thank you Sergio,
As I said before I was surpiced also with the shuttertime!
But after a second look at the EXIF it whas right.
If you look closely at the head of the bird you wil notice the turn she made in that 1/10 off a sec....

Best regards,

This picture is perfect for its composition and color. The bird makes a good contrast with the leaves for colors and focus.
Only a question: we have a lot of this birds around our house and the head looks like a bit different; maybe it is a little rotated right?

Thanks Piero,

You are right about the head it is rotated and also you can see the rotation made due of the long shuttertime.
There are two kind of those birds I know of.
The one you see here is the smaller version and has a blue head, the bigger version has a black head.
