Go to Ecard Page

Looking out from the reeds is a Marsh warbler
You can distinguish it from the more common reed warbler, by it's song which is a sweet 'musical' warbling (also mimics other birds) while the Reed Warbler is noisy and repetetive.
In appearance its underside is whiter, head and upper parts darker and the legs paler.

This beautiful singer has become somewhat rare in the UK and is on the Red List.
