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!

B.Nield said...

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!

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.

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?
