Blyth's Reed Warbler: Problems & Pitfalls
Blyth's Reed Warbler Nanzial - 1st for Cornwall Sep 2015
Blyth's Reed Warbler records at Portland Bird Observatory
|Amazing how different the colouration of the bird looks in different light - Here in darker light and below....
| More in the open and in brighter light. The bird seemed to show a grey shawl around the neck at times. Also uniform coloured tertials.
Reed and Marsh should be far more contrasting.
|Showing a slight "banana posture" and the bronze wing panel
|Pale legged and pale throated from certain angles and an all yellow lower mandible lacking any dark tip that BRW is often meant to show
|Skulking! The supercilium appeared deceptively striking behind the eye at times
|Again in the open briefly!
