Bearded Tit (Bearded Reedling) are one of the most iconic species of the British wetland landscapes. Secretive, mobile and often elusive they are posses eye watering beauty and a striking appearance.
Having never managed pleasing photos of Bearded Tit I headed down to Lakenheath Fen RSPB reserve with Richard Campey in the hope of breaking that duck. Unfortunately the weather was far from ideal with blustery conditions and heavy cloud making conditions for seeing these birds tricky, let alone photographing them.
After a brisk walk towards Mere Hide we enjoyed prolonged views over the course of an hour. Their fast movements coupled with the wind and dense reedbed made for difficult photography but ultimately the effort proved fruitful.
