Male (shown) has a black 'moustache' and grey head which females lack. Shiny black legs and small bright yellow bill. Often seen climbing reed stems.
Dense reed beds dispersed through Europe. This bird photographed at Radipole Reserve in Dorset, England.
Although called a 'Bearded Tit' this species hasn't got a beard and isn't even of the Tit family. It is of the Babbler family and is the sole representative of this group in Europe.
