North from Africa, Across the Saharan Desert, a Singing Sedge Warbler arrived in Sussex today.

This little fellow was at Southease this morning. They nest down low near water in Sedges, but of course!

*The sedge warbler is an Old World warbler in the genus Acrocephalus. It is a medium-sized warbler with a brown, streaked back and wings and a distinct pale supercilium. Sedge warblers are migratory, crossing the Sahara to get from their European and Asian breeding grounds to spend winter in Africa. The male's song is composed of random chattering phrases and can include mimicry of other species.
