Cromwell Bottom was designated a Local Nature Reserve on June 30th 2003
Now that is a Sedge Warbler and mighty good shots as well.............
Beat me to it! - Yes I think you will find thats a Sedge Warbler - I think its a Juv'y but clearly not a Reed Warbler!I did point out hearing & seeing Sedge earlier this year!
Graham! Have you any shots of the rear of this bird please?I would like to rule out a couple of possible exotic visitors!Anything I could use to check its ID.To my Email would be fine if you dont want to put them online.I have this thing at the back of my mind regarding something a bit tastier, just want to check, but it will probably end up as Juv Sedge. Primary tips & rear end would be useful!Thanks!
Many thanks guys wasnt sure myself but as not seen or heard for a long time thought it must be a Reed. gwh
Well done with the Sedge Warbler and nice to get some good photo's.
Good to see the sedge warbler photos Graham; well done. Not an easy bird to photograph. It's a pity we don't see more of them in the area.
Thanks for your comments Guys . gwh
I'll tell you what - This might be worth a double check from a Smarty Pants? I am still umming & arring over Aquatic Warbler.It strikes me more as an Aquatic than a Sedge the more I look. Sedge don't usually have the stripe right down middle of head, & the upper wings are more detailed than sedge, same for back end.I do admit I am not an ultimate expert - but a lot of features are leaning me towards Aquatic! & the two can be confused for each other.I do think this bird may be worth a pass before an expert! If only to be sure?
Its a sedge................
I agree Andy juv Sedge . gwh
