Hi,

Spotted this Warbler at RSPB Rye Meads this weekend.

I think its a Reed, but could well be Marsh although less likely.

Though I would ask and see if anyone could be more definitive than me!


Thanks,

eurasian reed warbler, on strongly rufous tones and short primary projection. bill probably not yet fully grown - looks like a wet juvenile.
