Bearded Tits. Hyde Park, London

Cute, Close n Confidin’

Bearded Tit 11

Arriving via train from the north on 6th Feb 2013, I disembarked at Hyde Park Corner and entered Hyde Park. Knowing there had been some remarkable confiding Bearded Tits in the centre of London I rang the fount of all… Mr Tom McKinney. Instruction received it didn’t take long to connect. Not necessarily the closest but quite the longest uninterrupted viewing I have had of this species. 2 females ringed in 2012  at Rye Meads, Hertfordshire, which couldn’t fail to delight all comers. See for yourself (even if it was a bit windy):

Thanks again to guide Ralph and Kat and all the folk who turned out for the London Bird Club gig. Really enjoyable afternoon in the park and evening spent with excellent group.
