The RSPB believes the tit may have been attacked by a predator
An unusual bird has made its home in a garden in Devon.
The bird first appeared in Jaine Swift's garden in Buckfast about a week ago and has been returning to her feeder ever since.
"I looked up one day and thought 'there's a long tailed tit without a tail'," Ms Swift said.
It is unclear whether the bird, which has been named "No Tail Tit", was born without tail feathers or has been injured.
The bird first arrived with a flock of long tailed tits, but has been feeding on its own since.
Tony Whitehead from the RSPB said it was an amazing sight.
He said: "I've never seen a long-tailed tit like that. What I imagine is this poor little thing has lost its tail feathers to a predator of some type, and it'll have to wait until the next moult to re-grow its tail."
