My first spotting of a Great Reed-warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus), this morning at the Teppes de Verbois. I went there hoping to see the Common Little Bittern (Ixobrychus minutus) that has been seen lately, didn't happen but I was excited to see a new species! The Great Reed-warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus) is slightly bigger than the Eurasian Reed-warbler (Acrocephalus scirpaceus). The latter being more common here.

Russin, Switzerland.

Not baited. Not called in.
