Reed Buntings at Amwell

7th March 2017

The James Hide at Amwell is an ideal place to photograph birds, even with the cheapest of cameras or even a phone. Feeders are placed just two yards from the window resulting in a steady procession of Blue, Great, Long-tailed and Marsh Tits, Robins, Dunnocks and Reed Buntings. If you prefer not to photograph birds on the ironmongery of feeders, there is a host of totally natural branches and reed stems for them to pose on before going for the seed.

The Reed Buntings in particular are a little more shy than the tits and therefore tend to approach the feeders a little more slowly, allowing some great opportunities for some close-ups. Here is a selection of some males I took today...................
