A pair of Beardies

Posted: November 16, 2018 in Birds, Natural History

I have been blogging here for nearly 6 years so thought I would take an opportunity to re-post some of my favourite posts from those early days.

This one from a memorable birdwatching day in January of 2013.

Out early for the journey up to Hyde Park to see the pair of Female bearded reedlings that have been present in the small reedbed by the Princess Diana memorial fountain for at least a few days. Arrive and easily locate the birds at a distance of perhaps 5 feet. Lots of opportunity for photos. Surprisingly there are few people here. It transpires that they may have been around for up to a month but were only confirmed last week.
