[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus scirpaceus) - it breeds across Europe into temperate western Asia.
This is a medium-sized warbler, 12.5-14 cm in length. The adult has an unstreaked brown back and buff underparts. The forehead is flattened, and the bill is strong and pointed. The sexes are identical, as with most warblers, but young birds are richer buff below. Like most warblers, it is insectivorous, but will take other small food items including berries. The song is a slow, chattering jit-jit-jit with typically acrocephaline whistles and mimicry added. This small passerine bird is a species found almost exclusively in reed beds, usually with some bushes. The 3-5 eggs are laid in a basket nest in reeds. The chicks fledge after 10 or 11 days. The Reed Warbler is one of the species that are brood parasitised by the Common Cuckoo.
