Description:

A warbler in a reed bed, but is it Reed Warbler? I've seen very few warblers, and am not confident with them yet. At Brandon Marsh nature reserve.

Reed Warbler vs Sedge

Just adding my bit (again) I'm getting to grips, slowly, with these myself. They have a very rhythmic song - thing Rhythm - Reed as I think Bill Oddie said. Sedge Warblers on the other hand much more chaotic scratchy song and also have a very distince pale supercilium (eyebrow)!
