 Auk, The: NIGHT MOVEMENTS OF YOUNG REED WARBLERS (ACROCEPHALUS SCIRPACEUS) IN SUMMER: IS IT POSTFLEDGING DISPERSAL?
Reed Warblers (Acrocephalus scirpaceus) are associated with reed stands and possess adaptations to the intrinsically fragmented nature of such stands.
It may be expected that the type of postfledging movements in the Reed Warbler may be qualitatively different from the pattern observed in the species that inhabit continuous habitats.
The aim of the present study was to capture young Reed Warblers banded as nestlings during postfledging movements outside reedbeds.

 Birds of reed vegetation: shrubs and trees are encroaching marshland - Environmental Data Compendium   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The birds of reed vegetation have declined because reed vegetation is dwindling.
The reed fringes of open water are becoming narrower, because the water quality is poor and the water level no longer fluctuates naturally (high in the winter and low in the summer).
Furthermore, reed is being ousted by shrubs and trees, a process reinforced by the repercussions of water draw-down and by the eutrophication of the surface water.

 Ecology: Patterns Of Nest Predation Contribute To Polygyny In The Great Reed Warbler
In the polygynous Great Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus), the variation in territory quality may be associated with nest site characteristics or food supply.
Artificial nests with attached soft plasticine model eggs were placed in Great Reed Warbler territories of different attractiveness, Marks in the soft model eggs were compared to marks from possible predator species.
We found that in Great Reed Warblers the rate of nest predation was lowest in territories of high attractiveness (inhabited by polygynous males) and highest in territories of low attractiveness (inhabited by monogamous and unmated males).

Reed Warblers are a fairly common breeding species throughout Bucks but are restricted to reedbeds.
Hence they are found typically at lakes and rivers where suitable reedbeds have been allowed to develop and are relatively undisturbed.
They show a marked preference for "Phragmites" reeds which better suits their nest and may be encouraged to colonise an area by providing this species of reed.

 The Strange Warbler at The Lhen 15   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Of this family, there is only Sedge Warbler that is regular here on the Isle of Man. But this bird was obviously not a Sedge Warbler, due to its very plain mantle and wing feathers (Sedge Warbler has a distinctly streaked mantle and dark centres to the wing coverts and tertials).
That left me having to consider that the bird was either a Reed Warbler (a rare passage bird on the island) or the even rarer Marsh Warbler (no records, from the main island) and therefore definitely worth further investigation.
I must admit that my initial reaction was to lean towards the bird being a Marsh Warbler as it appeared to lack any warm colouration (although this was subjective from one photo) and had very pale legs.
