PERCHING on a reed this little bunting bird is captured in perfect detail by Camera Club member Anthony Morris.

The mix of browns in its feathers mean the creature is perfectly suited to blending into its surroundings at Farmoor Reservoir.

We especially like the contrast between the crystal-clear features of the bird, down to its claws gripping the reed, to the slightly hazy background.

The image was taken during a small Camera Club meet up on New Year's Day.

A spread of our favourite 'Happy New Year' themed photographs will appear tomorrow.

Happy snapping!
