Finally connected with the Bearded Tit this morning but light was poor. Very vocal around 9 a.m., looked as if it was leaving at one point but came back. Then flew high and dropped into inaccessible area at the back of the reeds near the dog field area.

No show from the male Bearded Tit this morning, but it was a tad windy - gusts blowing the reed almost flat! A few Reed Bunting were coming out to the seed on the boardwalk, and a Blue Tit. Nice to meet up with Nicki & Glyn Roberts.
