London’s bird groups are abuzz with excitement

16 January 2013


London’s bird groups are abuzz with excitement after a pair of bearded tits were spotted in Hyde Park on Friday. The park is full of common species as well as more exotic visitors but these birds have never before been seen in central London.

These lovely birds are normally spotted in the vast reed beds of East Anglia, Kent and Somerset but have been attracted to the park’s small new strips of reeds along the Serpentine lake, restored by the Royal Parks as part of their habitat restoration programme.

We're planning a bird watching walk in the Park in April – we can’t guarantee such a rare sighting but can certainly give you the skills to spot and identify some of our more long-term residents.
