The first bearded tit on holy island for 6 years! The weather was poor and light was at a low level so the image does have a degree of digital noise in it.

Hi Mark

Nice shot of this bird with good colors and a nice blurred background. Good detail even with a high ISO producing noise.
Good capture and TFS

Dear Mark!

At this resolution the noise is not really visible and is not a very disturbing element. I like your picture very much and I believe that the low light conditions were an advantage in the sense that they have created very natural colour tones. The overall impact of the picture is very pleasant.

Kind regards

Hello Mark!

Great shot of bearded tit. I saw this birds two Years ago in my country on Sobieszewo Island. Unfortunately weather was very bad and it was very cloudy and dark day so I have only one acceptable shot of this species
