Reed Warblers

Over the last two or three years I have been trying to get some good Reed Warbler images, without much luck. This was mainly down to the strong winds we were experiencing at the best time to photograph them, this being April and May when the males are in full song. Trying to find and photograph these small birds through the reed stems is no easy task, coupled with the winds, it was near enough impossible. So at last this year we had some calmer weather and after several days of peering into the reedbed, I achieved some good results.
One thing that has become obvious whilst editing the images is that, once you have a Reed Warbler in a reedbed shot, all the others are very similar. So just four of the best in this post.
