Well I believe it to be a Sedge Warbler if you know different please put me right. This is a different from most bird images on here as it shows singing in natural surroundings so I will be interested to see how it fares.

Very good image, and yes thats a Sedge Warbler. I like images that present a natural
picture and show a bit of the habitat. Well done. Wink

I have often remarked that I like seeing birds in their natural setting as here with your shot, Albert, even if it means the bird occupies a smaller space within the frame.
So you have the thumbs up from me.
Ronnie.

Lovely to see the natural setting, certainly does not distract from the bird itself. A fine image.

Sharp, well-framed and the setting is delightful too. Lovely image, Albert, and I just had to get a You Tube clip of the bird song to listen to whilst viewing this.

I really like the setting too - it does make a difference seeing the bird in its surroundings and he's just about the right size in my opinion. I like the fact you can see the colour in his gape and I love the bokeh.
