REED WARBLER

The Reed Warbler is a small brown warbler that sidles up reeds and dives back or moves across open space, quickly disappearing from sight.  Plain darker brown upper parts and lighter under parts with a whitish patch under beak and creamy brown stripe across the eye.  There are currently 90,000 pairs in the UK found mostly in reedbeds and swamps or nearby trees.  My best photo of this Warbler was taken at Fairburn Ings in 2015.
