The Reed Beds Where The Reed Warbler Was Heard

When feeding the ducks before work started this morning Ali heard a rare sound from the reeds across the way. Upon further investigation the sound was identified although not seen, the sound was of a Reed Warbler. Never heard before at Worcester College, the bird remained in amongst the reeds, singing all day, well hidden from her camera so only a 30 second piece of film was recorded with the warbler's song heard in the background (along with a Blackbird and human voices.) A small brown bird that is a summer visitor to the UK, confirmation of the song can be found at http://www.british-birdsongs.uk/reed-warbler
PS This bird remained in the reeds for one day, hasn't been heard since.
