Sedge Warbler - RSPB Otmoor

The reeds were alive a few weeks ago when I visited Oxfordshire en route to the New Forest. Reed and Sedge Warblers were in their finest voice. The sun was out and the volume was turned up.
The song of the Sedge Warbler is quite mesmerising to listen too, and it's even better if you've managed to locate the bird and you can watch it in full flow.
I was lucky enough to do so on a number of occasions. Here are a few of the shots I got.

  5. Great photos of beautiful little birds. I can imagine how good it would be to watch it singing while clinging to those grass stems.

  11. Good shots Adam. You chose the best time to get Sedge Warblers - singing up the reeds in the breeding season.

  16. Such a cute bird, and I like the framing with the reeds and color gradient in the background. The bright orange gullet is quite a shock.
