Habitat

A warbler singing from reeds like that, in late April, is most likely to be a Reed Warbler. Grasshopper Warblers will do, too, but generally are at the edge of such areas, where there are brambles and rough vegetation, rather than just reeds. The confusion species for this bird would be Marsh Warbler, rather than Grasshopper, which is why I have gone for 'It's likely...'.
