The Great Reed Warblers in southwestern and southeastern Europe were at that time apparently separated by the Vistulian-Würm ice sheets and the barren land around these. Though the data is insufficient to robustly infer a date for this separation, it suggests the populations became separated around 80,000 years ago – coincident with the first major advance of the ice sheets.

The sexes are alike in appearance. More

The song of the male reed warbler, recorded on Cley Marshes, Norfolk. The rasping, repetitive 'churring' song of this warbler is very characteristic of wetland areas and reed beds during the summer months. It is here that this modest brown bird searches for its favourite food of insects, spiders, slugs and berries. As with the dunnock and meadow pipit, this bird may fall victim to the parasitic cuckoo, whose eggs can closely resemble the colouration and markings of the reed warbler's own clutch. More
