Male bearded tit

Bearded tit

A trip to Alkborough Flats on Monday was a great chance to watch Bearded Tits. A flock fed nervously on the reed seedheads, showing how agile these birds are. They climb on the stems and balance with their long tail, that they regularly flick. Their warm colours matches the dry reeds so well that they blend into the background. A watercolour, pencil an ink drawing that took longer than I expected to finish.
