Denmark in June, song of warblers (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi, I am still trying to get hold of the warblers here in Denmark.
I have made 4 recordings of singing warblers, would anyone be able to help me ID them?

1) This one is recorded in the reeds at a lake called Gundsømagle. I think it is a Eurasian reed warbler (Acrocephalus scirpaceus) or a Sedge warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus). I hope it is the latter but i am not sure...

2) + 3) was recorded on the edge of a nearby field in a bush. Could that be a Marsh warbler (Acrocephalus palustris)? (there are sounds from a number of different species on the recording, but I am mostly interested in the one tat is singing - not the one that is alerting near the place where I recorded)

4) + 5) was recorded from a bird sitting in the trees near the lake. I think it is a Willow warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus)?

6) is a small video recorded a little earlier this year at Amager near Copenhagen. The bird cannot be seen in the video but the song can be heard. Is that an Icterine warbler (Hippolais icterina)?

Thanks a lot in advance.
Best regards, Peter
recordings 1,4,5 and 6 correct.
2 and 3 probably also right with marsh warbler but i can hardly hear the song. i'm a bit unsure about the warning sound which sounds more like a common whitethroat to me.
Hi Lou - thank you. Regarding 1), did you confirm it as a Eurasian reed warbler (Acrocephalus scirpaceus) or a Sedge warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus)?
Best, Peter
