Bearded Tit (Panurus biarmicus)

I was really keen that this Bearded Tit move a little to the side so I could get in the full majesty of its long tail. Eventually it did and I was also rewarded with the most glorious of reflections of this fabulous little bird as it struggled with a string of stubborn weed.

  2. Thanks Toffeeapple. The tit actually pulled at the pondweed for some time before it eventually snapped back into the water. Lovely to watch. – Tim

  3. I would be very happy to have taken these shots Tim, I have never seen a Bearded Tit as yet.
