It is always great to see Bearded Tits. All too often they are only heard calling or glimpsed briefly flying across the tops of the reeds before diving into cover. This little group has been feeding out in the open at times recently, attracting lots of admirers.
Bearded Tits are very patchily distributed in the UK, with only about 700 breeding pairs, and their stronghold is in East Anglia. We are fortunate to see them on many of our tours – though not always quite as well as this!
You can see a video clip below of the birds feeding on the ground:
