Marsh warbler ? Jeddah (1 Viewer)

I’m wondering if this might be African Reed Warbler ammadoux, as the pp seems to be half the tertial length and I can’t see any meaningful emarginations on p3/4 which I might expect to see on A.palustris/scirpaceus, see what others say?

Cheers

could it be Caspian reed, as this is there time here, or it might be the local mangrove reed.

the thing that let me think of marsh was the eye ring.

That was my first thought (as preferable to Marsh or African anyway) but not even sure it’s an acro at the moment! Looks good for fuscus though on further scrutiny.

I see it’s been uploaded to Birdguides as a Caspian Reed Warbler then!?

so I guess you made a decision already?

Did you ever get a positive ID on this bird btw (which I still think is a


Blyth’s)?
