When I arrived back from my cycle, eating a white magnum and feeling rather pleased with my afternoon, my downstairs neighbour walked over and told me that he had just found something to show me.
I followed him to the door at the back of the converted house that marks the entrance to his downstairs flat, where he told me to look into the buddleiah.
I spotted them straightaway. An adorable family of 6 baby long tailed tits, sat in a line alternating tail to the left, tail to the right. Their parents called them, and off they flew, making their "zooop" calls.
But not before I got a snap with my phone.
