Bearded Tits Plaque PLQ8

The Bearded Tit – one of the UK’s rarer birds – is recovering from a severe population decline. Hard winters have killed many of these little birds, but recent mild winters have helped increase their breeding. Numbers are also improving as a result of the RSPB creating more habitats across their reserves: there are now around 500 pairs in England. RSPB Leighton Moss has around 25 pairs of bearded tits.

Named after the dark facial markings on the males that resemble a moustache, bearded tits make their homes on well-managed reedbeds. The gradual loss of this wetland habitat across the UK has resulted in the population becoming fragmented, but thanks to sites such as Leighton Moss, the future looks hopeful for these charming little birds, carefully portrayed in Alicia Amison’s plaque.

The Bearded Tits plaque comes in a limited edition of 30.
