The Sedge Warbler is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Sedge Warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus) is an Old World warbler in the genus Acrocephalus. It is a medium-sized warbler with a brown, streaked back and wings and a distinct pale supercilium. Sedge Warblers are migratory, crossing the Sahara to get from their European and Asian breeding grounds to spend winter in Africa. The male's song is composed of random chattering phrases and can include mimicry of other species. The Sedge Warbler is mostly insectivorous. More

The oldest recorded Sedge Warbler was a bird ringed in Finland which reached the age of 10 years, 1 month. The typical lifespan is 2 years. Taxonomy - The Sedge Warbler was first described by Carolus Linnaeus in his Systema naturae in 1758 (British ornithologists did not distinguish the species from the Eurasian Reed Warbler until the 18th Century).

Cool Facts: The sedge warbler is a small songbird with plain feather colours, but makes up for its lack of colour with its very loud and varied songs. These loud calls are used for establishing territory and for attracting females. More

Not only have sedge warblers been late in arrival recently, but even as the longest day approaches the numbers in parts of the upper Thurne have been below normal. However, populations of summer migrants wintering in Africa vary here from summer to summer. And the sedge remains the most widespread of our marsh haunting warblers. Their breeding season range, covering the greater part of Europe, extends as far as northern Scandinavia. More

Sedge warbler on the Greatham Site Sedge Warbler currently breed on site, nesting in reedbeds and marsh areas including rushes and sedges. Sedge Warbler prefer dense vegetation, and the marshy areas around the ponds and ditches on site provide this suitable habitat. Sedge Warbler are summer visitors to the site, from mid April to September/October. Sedge Warbler are similar to Reed Warbler, in that they are mobile, bold and often in the open. This makes them easier to survey on site. More

The Sedge Warbler is good mimic, and introduces phrases into its song in random, so it never sings the same song twice; those males with the widest range phrases attract the most matings from females line Population and Distribution Population Trend: Wider Countryside Report Regional Trends: Scotland England English Regions Distribution: Atlas Maps (Help with the New Atlas) More

The sedge warbler is a small migrant from Southern Europe and North Africa between April and August. It nests largely in marshy scrub, fens and reedbeds, but is also found along small rivers and ditches with dense vegetation. Is is one of the most easily recognised of the five warbler species in Northern Ireland with its heavily black-streaked head, olive-brown upper body, conspicuous cream eyestripe, white throat and rufous flanks.

Sedge Warblers are noisy residants of many wetland habitats between April and September. The males can often be seen sharing song posts with male Reed Buntings, the two species living happily side by side. Once heard, the harsh calls of Sedge Warblers from within a reed bed is easily remembered and even if not seen it is often pretty obvious that they are present. More

The general distribution of Sedge Warblers in Britain and Ireland has not changed much although they may have colonised more of the Hebrides in the last 50 or 60 years. First breeding on Shetland was proved in 1996 However there are very clear indications of general losses from much of the range between the two Breeding Atlases More

This sedge warbler photographed at Pagham Harbour on the South Coast has a beak full of aphids. Getting shots of these birds was a question of watching them until I could find one that regularly used an exposed perch and these were very difficult to find in the dense reedbeds. It was nice to be able to get a shot that showed enough background without the reeds being too intrusive. More
