Sedge Warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus)

By Ray42
Many thanks for the comments and clicks on the dunnock - always most welcome and some very constructive comments taken on board.

This on was taken at Dungeness - sat for hours trying to catch them - they are keeping in the brambles and gorse due to high winds and lots of birds of prey around.
Hope you enjoy this set - constructive comments and mods always welcome

Please view large if you have time - once again many thanks

4 great images, must say i love v4!!! but all are grand images x x

V4 is my favourite as well - a great set! Spent ages trying to get a good shot of a sedge warbler myself last Sunday but just couldn't get a clear view of one. So well done!

Nice work, Ray. I particularly like V 2 and 4 where nesting material seems to be being gathered.
Regards, Ronnie.

I think this is a great set and lovel those of them gathering nesting materials. What a dreadfully prickly perch though! Having said all that, think I must go for V1 where he's living up so well to his name!!

I reckon this is the best shot you have posted so far Ray. Its an absolute corker mate. V1 in my view is best Sedge that I have seen. Shortlisted.

A brilliant set of images. Collecting for the nest pictures are superb, V4 being the best pose, of course, complete with white feather - rather like a fusilier's hackle. However, the Warbler arbling in V1 has to be my favourite. Full marks, three upward clicks, for a wonderful set.
