Bank holiday reed bed bird ......

The reedbeds at TLNR are alive with Reed Warblers at the moment.

And where there are Reed Warblers, Cuckoos will not be far away.

A male Cuckoo was very vocal and flitting about in the trees at the back of the reed beds at the South hide, frustratingly the bird always seemed to  manage to perch distantly and with foliage partly obscuring it.


  1. It's always a challenging habitat to photograph wildlife John, but I have to say it's one of my favourite habitats. I generally feel as long as the vegetation doesn't obscure the bird it's ok. This is a great image.

  2. I too like the reed beds Douglas, at TLNR the South hide is elevated which allows you to look down rather than through the reeds .... this helps.
