The warm winter has led to an increase in numbers of small birds visiting gardens around the UK this year.
According to the Guardian there has been a 44% increase in long-tailed tit sightings in comparison to figures from 2015.
But it's not just the tit that has been seen hanging around our greenery more this year, plenty of other small birds are also thought to have made the most of the warmer weather.
Other birds that have been seen in our gardens more frequently include goldfinches, coal tits, greenfinches and woodpigeons.
The results come from the 2016 Big Garden Birdwatch which is conducted by the RSPB.
A staggering 8,262,662 birds were counted, and the top 10 birds in 2016 were as follows:
1. House sparrow
3. Blue tit
8. Great tit
10. Long tailed tit
The RSPB have suggested that the warmer weather in January meant more of the smaller birds survived the winter to be counted.
