I waited a fair while to capture this little Warbler. I could hear him singing his heart out deep in bushes and just hoped he'd pop out and say hello. I think, but I'm not sure that he is a Reed Warbler. Taken Thursday at the WWT Arundel where I had the pleasure of meeting Dave (britpix) when we spent a couple of hours wandering around.

I do hope you like my effort, he sung beautifully.
I was disappointed with my last upload but we all have off days, so beit.
Sorry for just clicking lately but I'm very busy at the moment. I will catch up at some point.

Many thanks for all the C&C's and I hope you all have a glorious weekend.
Steve.

Good set of shots Steve, saw this bird today as well Smile but it's a sedge warbler, not a reed warbler. Not easy to get a clear shot - I had the same problem - so great captures!

Have to agree with everybody else here Steve for V3 as the main photo. Always a must either with food or in full song and especially as it is more in the open. Superb timing and capture and as a couple have said a Sedgy
