Reed Warbler. These have just re-appeared after a winter absence, they are easy to hear but hard to see and shoot, there usually seems to be something in the way of a clear shot.

Great job photographing the warblers. Living in Florida, I know how tough it is to photograph birds down in the weeds and reeds. The Meadowlarks here drive me crazy but I keep on trying.

Thanks Robert. Yes they spend most of their time in the bottom of the reeds climbing to the top to survey the countryside periodically, trouble is they don't climb just one reed but hop about every few seconds and if you move to get a better shot down they go again. Very frustrating to say the least...

Getting a warbler (or other small reed birds) sharp is a challenge indeed
It worked very well here.

Thanks Domien and Fred. Good shot Domien, didn't see the second chick at first glance. It would have been interesting to see how the chicks managed such a big meal...

Visited today some fortifications in the surroundings, like the one in Willemsdorp, De Hel and Fort Sabina. Nothing very special to see, except for some roosters/chickens.

I read that this Siberian Rubythroat is very shy. All the more applause for Victor.
