Bearded Tits are absolutely stunning birds, they make a very distinctive ping sound. You cannot mistake it. I have seen flocks fly around with as many as 20 birds. They move their way through reeds normally low down and on the odd occasion they will pop up now and then. They come and go. These were on the Somerset levels. The females do not have the black moustache/beard like look as the males do. I took these this around 8am this morning. It was very over cast, cloudy, and just dull morning.

Thanks ! :-)
I've been away for a bit, trying to catch up.
Funny, for all the "more exotic" birds I've shot over the last couple years, this simple Robin family has gotten more reaction than anything else !

It was a wonderful shot Dave, sometimes it does not take just rare exotic birds, it's the composition and setting that makes a great photo. I would of been proud to of taken that photo. It really is that good.
