Sedge Warbler

Sedge Warbler is a bird of the Acrocephalus genus that consist of 43 different birds throughout the world . They start to come into our country in April after spending the winter in Africa and they have the ordeal of having to cross the Sahara Desert before reaching their breeding grounds in this country , they stay to around the end of September before doing the perilous return journey back to their wintering grounds in Africa . It is one of our common migrants and is quite commonly seen on the Exminster Marshes .

Also seen today was the Greater White-Fronted Goose , 2 Barnacle Goose , 100+ Common Shelduck and only my second Green Sandpiper of the year .
