Bearded Reedling

Tofta Kile, Sweden

A very exciting bird that was my top priority to see in Sweden having had my eyes on from fieldguides for years now.
At Tofta Kile,30 km North of Gothenburg there is a nature preserve full of reeds, the birds preferred habitat. The birds were very active and I saw many small flocks. There was a bit of wind so not that easy to get the birds in the frame for very long.
This is the male.
