ABP: Great Reed Warbler

Great Reed Warbler, Acrocephalus arundinaceus (2012)

Watercolour on paper, 210 x 297mm.

The Great Reed Warbler is a huge warbler, 50% bigger than a Reed Warbler and almost as big as a Redwing. Most warblers move delicately through the reeds but this one crashes around clumsily. In plumage it looks quite similar to a Reed Warbler but it has a more obvious eyestripe and the larger size and stronger bill are usually obvious.
