I think it is a Reed Warbler, lovely little bird usually found around reedbeds in Central and Southern England and Wales. Sings from within the reedbed rather than from a perch, so often heard rather than seen. This makes this a great capture of such a shy bird.

Well done

Well done Andy for spotting this Reed Warbler, great capture and nicely presented too.

Technically, I think that this photograph has been well-taken. In my opinion, the exposure is correct and the main subject looks sharply in focus.

Artistically, I think that this photograph would look a whole lot better if the main subject filled the frame. This could have been achieved by zooming in or by moving closer to main subject. Failing that, it would also look better if the main subject were not centrally positioned in the frame. The textbooks suggest the rule of thirds.

Well you've already said you were zoomed in fully so don't quite get that Andy ? Obviously you were limited here with focal length but you did very well, good comp showing the bird in it's natural environment,

Like my namesake, I also don't understand this comment, if you try to move closer it will be long gone! I've tried to catch these by our local river, they only stay in one spot for about 5 secs max.
Excellent shot, nice to see a rare capture, as taken, thanks for sharing.

Excellent capture of a Reed Warbler, Andy. Re the above comment, short of standing on your camera and pulling on the zoom lens very hard (I'm only joking of course Wink you can't increase its max focal length. Well done for spotting the bird. I've never captured one yet. You did really well.

Artistically I think this image is very good indeed and technically youíve done far better than Iíve ever managed.
