As detailed below I finally caught up with Coal Tits in good light and in the open. I took lots and lots of pictures and the results of some are pleasing.
Even in decent light some pictures under the canopy of the trees are dark and difficult, not enough light or too much but in the open the light was good and even for good shots.
Yes, I was slightly cheating the bird feeders are just out of shot.
I had a great hour taking pictures, the birds ate every single sunflower heart (I left some more seed for them).
I hope you like the results.
Merry Christmas to all visitors to my blog.
