Bunting On Bracken

Bunting On Braken

Bunting On Bracken

It’s NOT a snow bunting but it is in the snow. It’s NOT on reeds but it is a reed bunting! Bird watching can be ever so confusing 😉

Reed Bunting in the snow

These were taken on Friday morning in Bushy Park, with a smattering of snow. The bracken is a hiding place for lots of small insects that the birds are feeding on. There were bunting, wrens, robins, great tits, blue tits, chiffchaff  and stonechats all flitting in and out of the bracken near Heron Pond. They can be hard to spot! I listen for the song and look for movement to find my subjects, but sometimes you don’t know they’re there until you’re almost on top of them and they take flight.
