How to identify

The Aquatic Warbler is an autumn migrant to certain areas in southern Britain, visiting on its way between breeding grounds in eastern Europe and its winter home in West Africa. Its dependence on coastal reedbeds - specialised and vulnerable breeding habitats - means it has become a globally threatened and declining species. It is more yellow-brown and streaked than the similar Sedge Warbler, with a distinct yellow crown stripe.
