Rare birds spotted in the reed beds of The Serpentine

There has been a rare bird sighting in Hyde Park recently. A pair of Bearded Tits in the reed beds of The Serpentine.

This was the first ever sighting of this species in Central London, well away from their normal habitat in the extensive reed beds of East Anglia, Kent and Somerset.
