Bearded Tits at last!!

After several attempts over many years, as well as 4 attempts over the past couple of weeks it was more than a relief to at last get a few photos of these gorgeous birds today. After getting the Slavonian Grebe yesterday I suppose that gave me the confidence to keep going!! Out of the, now 5 recent attempts, I have seen the Bearded Tits 3 times. Each time it is a pair and quite possibly the same pair. Although the photos I've managed are a long way from the best Bearded Tit photos I am pleased to at last get something reasonable, and they certainly are my best Bearded Tit pictures!! Following this the Slavonian Grebe once again put on a pretty good display for me. I didn't see the Long-tailed Duck today although apparently it had been seen earlier in the day. Perhaps the fishermen in the area the Duck prefers made it go into hiding.
