Cheated slightly- got these at Pensthorpe waterfoul trust
No interactions present.
Just wondered what people called them?
Im not saying I know what these birds are, but I checked the EOL and the pictures that came up look nothing like the ones shown....
I've never heard of these being called Reed Buntings - which is a name most people use for Emberiza schoeniclus (eg. http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/15985 )
Bearded Tit, Bearded Reedling or even Bearded Parrotbill are names I have heard used - if Reed Bunting is a name used in your area it's a good example of the need for scientific names to prevent confusion.
PS. I'm agreeing with your ID because of the scientific name, and you called them Bearded Tits in the title!
This is a male Bearded Tit or Bearded Reedling the Reed Bunting is a different family and is very different in shape and colouration.
