Reed Warbler

Seen in reed beds along the shore of Lake Garda, Italy. Difficult to see as the reeds were six to nine feet way. They came to the top of a reed to sing.

Great Reed

Nearer the size of a Thrush, with a heavy bill and pale tips to primary feathers. Song like Reed, but deeper and rougher and very loud. This bird looks big and heavy and the beak looks large.

Thanks orphrys :] The song

Thanks orphrys :] The song was very rough and very loud indeed at times. This was the third year I'd seen them but never managed to get a photo before.
