Bearded Tits

Bearded tits have always been a difficult bird for me to photograph – they’re just so quick and I rarely get to see them. There is an aviary at Pensthorpe in Norfolk that houses some bearded tits, which are bred for conservation programmes, and because the reeds are a limited territory within the aviary it’s actually possible to get some photos.

So here are some I took recently.

  1. Beautiful markings on that bird. You got some great shots. This bird is like the marsh wren here. Small, fast and lives in cattails. So tough to see long enough for a decent pic.

    • I know, I was so lucky to be in the right place, I’ve failed to get photos of them many times before. Just goes to show what a great habitat it is for them.
