Sedge in a hedge ..... and other perches !

I think that the Sedge Warbler is one of the most dapper and attractive birds and, with patience, far easier to photograph than many of our other migrant summer visitors.

They are quite inquisitive and will '' chrirrrr '' to make you aware of their presence when you approach their territory. 

Interestingly, newly fledged young if disturbed will adopt a posture similar to a Bittern with their beak pointing upwards to the sky, I have seen this but never managed to get an image of the behaviour.
