En. Reed Warbler, Da. Rørsanger, Du. Kleine Karekiet, Fi. Rytikerttunen, Fr. Rousserolle effarvatte, Ge. Teichrohrsänger, It. Cannaiola, No. Rørsanger, Sp. Carricero común, Sw. Rörsångare
The Reed Warbler can be found almost exclusively in reedbeds during the breeding season. There are several other plain brown warblers which might also be found in or near reedbeds, however. The Reed Warbler lacks the broader tails and clearer eyestripes of Savi's and Cetti's Warblers and the impressive size of a Great Reed Warbler. This leaves Marsh and Blyth's Reed Warbler which are exceptionally difficult to separate from Reed Warbler but far less likely to be seen in reedbeds.
Breeds almost exclusively in reedbeds.
A common summer visitor to southern and central England and East Anglia, but more local in Wales, north and south-west England. Rare in Scotland. Breeds mostly in reedbeds but can be seen in other habitats on passage.
One of the commonest birds of reedbeds throughout Europe.
40 000-80 000 breeding pairs across south east England and Wales. A few more from Scotland and Ireland's east coast (probably 40-50 singing males).
About 3 million breeding pairs mostly in northern Europe with more disjunct populations throughout southern Europe. Particularly large numbers occur in Romania.

A lovely result, I like the detail in the eye. The BG is nicely blurred, could be a touch sharper on the beak maybe, but the over all composition is very good indeed.
