Sedge Warbler

By leeg  
Quite a challenging bird to isolate from it's surroundings. Loves sitting and singing amongst the branches and I spent a good few hours trying to get a shot of her/him?
Taken at Cley Marshes in Norfolk, UK last weekend. Mid morning light and a nice BG I think. Never knew the background would be so good as I was just happy to get the isolation side of things. BG was long reeds and long grass.

Didn't have much time (or the experience!) to get better techs, sun was in and out, but did my best!

Thanks for any comments good or indifferent!

Amazing b/g - only Yarner has given me anything more uniform. Nice complimentary colour, and super sharp detail on the warbler too, very nice indeed.
