Bearded Tit's, a Stodmarsh Favourite.

Over the past week or so of cold, often icy conditions on the reserve at Stodmarsh/Grove Ferry, the resident flocks of Bearded Tits have become more vocal and easy to spot as they come up to the top of the reeds in search of seed. Taking advantage, I have been able to get a few images as they go about their business. Easily one of the more spectacular species that inhabit the reed beds of the Stour Valley and understandably a crowd favourite.

They could also be seen foraging for food on the ice in front of the Reed Bed hide, not where you would normally expect to see them.
