Sedge Warbler feeding young

By Glostopcat  
A sedge warbler with a mouthful of caterpillars to feed its young, seen in a reed bed beside the River Avon near Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire. The fledglings were calling out to be fed in the reed bed. Sadly they were not visible so I didn't manage any shots of them or the parents feeding them. I did manage to get quite a number of shots of one of the parents though.

Busy, busy, young mouths to feed. Nice clear shot of the warbler, unencumbered by reeds in the foreground.
