Guess the bird- (6 Viewers)

Hello,

once more: having read the other comments and hints (thanks!), the left bird surely has to be a Great Reed Warbler (if taken in Europe).

Both birds seems to have the right stance/posture on a reed (yes, single picture effect).

At first, the right gave a strange impression, but I now think, its looking towards thre camera, and the head is partially hidden behind some plant part, and is actually either a worn Moustached Warber or a Cettis Warbler.
If forced, I would opt for a Moustached Warbler:
  • I would expect to see the pale flesh legs of a Cettis Warbler even in a picture of this quality (no offence you know)
  • "Sedge Warber is close"
  • yes, you said your Mum was in Portugal

Sadly, when I meant close, I meant that they shared the family acrocephalidae- the other bird is a common warbler but you are correct about the great Reed warbler- this was taken in Langford lowlands last year- the picture below was taken through binoculars.

Hello again,

thats regular/usual brain function=ways of thinking (no offence you know).

Your new picture shows Pink footed Geese and a Canada Goose
Close- it’s a cackling the one that was in brancaster for a couple of days. Though it’s basically impossible to tell from this picture as all the pink footed are extremely blurry.
