Male Bearded Tit

By fishiee
Been trying to get a good shot of one of these for several years having been tipped off by a freind about a good spot for these close to home. After about 4 years I finally got to see about a dozen all relatively close for a couple of hours which was a joy to watch on a cold and frosty morning! For a change relatively tolerant of the numerous dog walkers and joggers that frequent the area and normally mess up most photo opportunities. For once most things were in my favour except the light which was terrible so had to resort to shooting around ISO 1000 which is normally a no-no for me. At 1000 pixels I can just about get away with the quality though.
