penduline tits

After many frustrating sessions at Bowling Green and Darts  I finally found Penduline tits 1/2 mile from my front door at Harper's lake fishing ponds near the Double Locks. 2 birds both without masks feeding and giving good views but mobile. Also reed bunting,stonechat,and jack snipe.Enough reed mace here and further along cycle path at viewing point to suggest they might stay.Seemed to be settling to roost at 2.50 in base of willow thicket.
