Thank's Sid, they are still showing now.....You tend to hear them before you see them, they have a "ping, ping" type sound. The best place to view them is Westhay Moor or RSPB Hamwall in Somerset I saw several last weekend at RSPB Greylake also. They move in small groups low down in the reeds but occasionally you will get 1 or 2 scouts pop up high in the reeds or branches to have a look around to get their bearings.

Thank you Jack, yes your right most of my shots I have are amongst the reeds also, the locations I have mentioned above are close to me so I'm fortunate to be able to visit often so get opportunities where they just so happen to show on the right reed or twig at the right time.

Thank you Kindly Ed, The only processing I do is on Canon's DPP free software, although I have photoshop I can not get on with it and get frustrated and inpatient.

Thank you Larry,

the photo below is a female, it does not have the black markings on it's face as the male does.

Such beauty on a dark, dull, miserable grey morning. This Male Bearded tit was easy to spot.
