Penduline Tit: Nice to finally catch up with this smart little bird which has been in the same area since before Christmas. Better to catch up with local lads Damion and Neil G.
The bird has taken a liking to Plot Court Nature Reserve and can be observed regularly visiting the Bulfushes to feed on the woolly seed heads.
I am always surprised to how small these little birds actually are and it was particularly interesting watching the bird using a headgerow for both feeding, preening and resting, as I thought they were exclusively reeds specialist's.
The masked bandit showed incredibly well and the crowd of toggers and biders didn;t seem to disturb it as it fed. 
If anyopne goes I would highly reccomed taking wellington boots.......its very wet and muddy in places.
