Paddyfield warbler (Acrocephalus agricola) photographed in Bulgaria earlier this year. I’ve chosen to showcase this species, not because the images are particularly outstanding, but just because this was a new bird for me and I think its one that may be of interest to birders. Would you pick this out from reed warbler in a north Norfolk coastal marsh?#
When I first saw it I was struck by the very white underparts and the obvious white supercillium set off by the dark stripes. The bird appeared smaller and shorter winged than a reed warbler and the pale lower mandible is clearly visible in this shot.
