Sedge or Moustached Warbler, El Rocio, Spain (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
took this single shot of what I originally thought was a Sedge Warbler but now I'm not so sure. I know that the cheeks of a MW are greyish and the white above the eye should be whiteish but also the legs are dark. What can be seen of the legs on this bird are very dark. All of information I seen suggests that the SW has light coloured legs. I'm not sure about any other differences like primary projections or bill length and thickness. Shot was taken near to El Rocio in Southern Spain (exact location 37°4'35.484" N 6°23'9.744" W )on 2nd April 2019. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
