[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Sedge Warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus) is an Old World warbler in the genus Acrocephalus. It breeds across Europe and western and central Asia.

It is migratory, wintering in sub-Saharan Africa.
This small passerine bird is a species found in reed beds with bushes. 3-5 eggs are laid in a nest in reeds or a bush. Pairs are usually monogamous, but not strictly so (Leisler & Wink 2000).

This is a medium-sized warbler, 11.5-13 cm long. The adult has a heavily streaked brown back and pale underparts. The forehead is flattened, there is a prominent whitish supercilium, and the bill is strong and pointed. The sexes are identical, as with most warblers, but young birds are streaked on the breast below. Like most warblers, it is insectivorous, but will take other small food items including berries.

The song is a fast, chattering jirra-jirra-jirra punctuated with typically acrocephaline whistles and mimicry.

The height of sharpness, me searched for this TOY but not available in my area and expected such exciting shot.
An informative NOTE that leads to more depth,
Beautiful catch and TFS.

Hello Peter,
Excellent image with very nice colors. This specie is breeding also in my country.
Very good POV.

wonderful capture in the singing pose, Peter.
Sharpness is exceptional and the composition with the foliage is quite attractive.

Hello Peter,
Well captured this Sedge Warbler. Almost looks like a Warbler I have captured recently, but not sure. Well details and light, although such background we photographer don't like much. No choice, sometime.
Thanks and regards,
