Bearded Tit.......a first for me!

Spent Saturday evening on the Somerset levels hoping to get my first ever views of Bearded tit. I was not disappointed (well only by the weather) and got a couple of shots of a juvenile.
I did see several juvs and a super male bird but it kept well down in the reeds away from my camera.
Reed & sedge warbler along with reed bunting were everywhere and bitterns were booming and feeding young in all directions.
Here are a couple of the bearded tit juvenile.
