I’ve only ever seen Bearded tits once before, and those so distant that even using my bins I could barely see well enough to identify them. So, you can perhaps imagine my delight today at being able to linger, watching a male and female feeding in reeds at the pond edge at Cardiff Bay wetlands. Such exotic-looking birds, especially the male with his black-tear-stained face; they look like they belong in a tropical rainforest rather than in wintery Wales. Magic!
