Windswept Reed Bunting

By Glostopcat  
A male reed bunting I saw from the Willow Hide at Slimbridge on a visit there last March when the weather was unseasonably cold and windy. Many thanks to Kathryn "Kathrynlouise" for the user award on the "Female Reed Bunting" which I uploaded yesterday.

Can't believe you are resorting to images taken a year ago (windswept ones at that...!!!), with your hard drive stuffed full of recent meanderings into Slimbridge, Ed Wink
How about more up-to-date 'high quality' ones, like yesterdays, now youv'e had all that time to practice? Wink Smile Grin
