Bearded Reedling by Ian A Kirk. Ian says:It was great fun getting these shots - the bird was deep inside a bullrush bed, it was windy and I had to use manual focus! Despite everything I managed to get a few shots - my first reasonable ones of this beautiful bird - I have seen them before but my photos were rubbish.
