BBOWT’s photographer of the month is Dan Ransley with this gorgeous photo of a reed bunting taken on a (very!) cold winter day at BBOWT's Weston Turville reserve. Dan spent most of the afternoon tucked up in a hide, sheltering from the lashing rain and looking out over the frozen water. Luckily his patience was rewarded when, not long before sunset, the rain stopped and the reed-beds were bathed in beautiful winter sunlight for a while. Making the most of the break in the weather, a pair of reed buntings took the opportunity to feed among the reeds just in front of the bird hide, giving Dan the perfect opportunity to get this shot. We'd love to see your photos of wildlife through the seasons. Share them with us on Twitter and Facebook.
