The Reed Bunting,
Emberiza schoeniclus, is a boldly marked member of the bunting family, typically
found in wetland and farmland, but in winter sometimes visits gardens. It eats mostly seeds sometimes insects and spiders.
The reed bunting like many species catch insects to feed their young. Outside the breeding season they may form feeding flocks.
They form largely resident populations across Europe.
