Reed bunting

Reed Buntings, common to wetlands and farmland in the UK.  Once on the red list as a species of conservation concern, but is now on the amber list.

I spotted this sole male bunting on a path on the way to one of the hides at Martin Mere on Friday.

  1. Do you know dear Roy, how do we call them 🙂 When I searched for reed bunting, I found this, in my own language “Cherry bird of marsh”… I don’t know what’s the connections with all these words. Thank you, love, nia
