Thanks Nicky, yes cracking shot from Simon, I would always recommend an early visit although some of my best photos recently have been mid-morning so you never know!

Thanks Jayne, just lucky to have caught up with them as they were in an accessible spot, most of the time they're out of sight in the middle of the reed beds. I didn't see any on the last two visits but fortunately I'm close enough to visit regularly!
Amazing captures JL (how did I miss this?) ... being intrepid in braving the cold conditions certainly brought you rewards & there's bound to be some snow soon!
Maybe you could compile a slideshow with your 'loads of pic' for us to share?

Thanks Wendy, well a slide show is certainly something I could do if you think there would be an interest!
Who does not love Beardies?! The more photos the better. Any way you choose to show us more photos of Beardies is fine by me, John--individual pics or a slide show, either or both would be great, bring 'em on!

Agree with Ann on this ... look forward to more soon JL .. no pressure! Lol

Well thanks to popular demand I will certainly be doing a slide show in the near future! Lovely to know you're interested. Here's to a happy birding year ahead, My ambition last year was to see and record a Wood Warbler, which with the aid of Tom Chinnick our county bird recorder (who gave me clear directions), I was able to accomplish. I hope I'm not being too ambitious by aiming to see and record a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker this year and an even less likely Dartford Warbler, but I am heading to Devon in May so fingers crossed!
Good luck, John! I await the results of your quests!
