The Bearded reedling (Panurus biarmicus) is one of my favourite birds, and I was lucky to encounter a flock a couple of days ago!
I don’t have a long zoom lens, so these images are heavily cropped (~30% of the original image!) though still reasonably sharp so I’m pretty pleased with the outcome.
It’s a lovely, sunny Spring day here in Amsterdam today. Here are a 3 bird pictures I took this morning-
(1) Great tit (Parus major)
(2) Bearded reedling (Panurus biarmicus)
This was a first for me! It’s been on my wish list since I first saw it in a bird book. Unfortunately the photo isn’t very sharp, it’s difficult to get close to these wetland specialists..
(3) Dunnock (Prunella modularis)
