Oops, forgot to add a title

Despite weather induced delays and discontinuities the, delightfully moist, reedbeds at Uskmouth produced another 120 acros this morning. Once again, diversity was at a premium (still no flipping paludicola) and the sole highlight was another foreign control, this time from the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris. I'm starting to see Sedge and Reed Warblers in my nightmares,...

The archetypal acrocephalus. Who said "Boring"? To the naughty step with you.

In contrast to Reed, and despite being as common as muck, there is something about a Sedgie, cute as a button and a song like an Indian Peafowl's tail.

PS. If everyone could please remember that the medial (or nasal) half of the optic nerve decussates we'll all get along much better. Contralateral visual fields people! Contralateral visual fields.
