The Great Reed Warbler, Acrocephalus arundinaceus, is an Old World warbler in the genus Acrocephalus. It breeds in Europe and westernmost temperate Asia. It is migratory, wintering in tropical Africa. It does not breed in Great Britain, but is a regular visitor.

This passerineMany, see text A passerine is a bird of the giant order Passeriformes . More than half of all species of bird are passerines. Sometimes known as perching birds or, less accurately, as songbirds the passerines are one of the most spectacularly successful v bird is a species found in large reed beds, often with some bushes. 3-6 eggs are laid in a basket nest in reeds.

This is a large Song ThrushSong Thrush : Animalia : Chordata : Aves : Passeriformes : Turdidae Turdus philomelos Binomial name ''Turdus philomelos Brehm, 1831 The Song Thrush Turdus philomelos is a common European member of the thrush family Turdidae. It is commonly found in well-v-sized warbler. The adult has an unstreaked brown back and buff underparts. The forehead is flattened, and the bill is strong and pointed. It is very like a giant Reed WarblerEurasian Reed Warbler : Animalia : Chordata : Aves : Passeriformes : Sylviidae : Acrocephalus : scirpaceus Binomial name Acrocephalus scirpaceus Hermann, 1804) The Eurasian Reed Warbler or just Reed Warbler Acrocephalus scirpaceus s is an Old World warble, but with a stronger supercilium. The sexes are identical, as with most warblers, but young birds are richer buff below. Like most warblers, it is insectivorous, but will take other small prey items.

The song is very loud and far carrying. It is a slow, chattering jit-jit-jit with typically acrocephaline whistles and mimicry added.

Hello Marius,
I've heard them during the last weeks, all over in the lower parts of Lesvos, but it's very difficult to photograph them in the open. So I find this photo very special.
Great quality in splendid clarity.

Hello Marius.
Excellent bird shot from you as always. Nice plumage details against the silenced blue sky is visually appealing.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.
