Reedbed Fun

I set myself a mini project of trying to get some better reed warbler photos this year. They are such tricky birds to photograph as they offer tantilising glimpses between reed stems but getting a clear shot of them require either luck or putting in some hours. As luck was not on my seide the only option was to put in some time.

Whilst messing around near the reedbeds I also came across a sedge warbler. This bird was ringed. I often find that ringed birds are much more confiding, which I suppose maybe a result of the human contact that the birds have had during the ringing process.
