Australian Reed Warbler

What sits in the reeds, in erm.. Australia and warbles a lot? You got it? I had no idea so thanks SG for identifying this tiny bird for me. 

Australian Reed Warblers are resident at the local swan pond right now. Favouring the heard but not seen approach, they spend the days warbling loudly,
flitting in and out of the reeds and over the water at high speed and desperately avoiding portrait posing situations.


  1. I saw a reed warbler on the weekend too! They have such a lovely song.

  2. Yes, they are loud and proud for tiny things! I see them a lot but am not a very fast photographer so it's hard for me to get a very good shot.
