Blyth's Reed Warbler - Lower Leogh, Fair Isle September 2015
Initially this Blyths Reed Warbler was very elusive in the garden at Upper Leogh but once it moved to the Rosa at Lower Leogh it became much more visible, showing out in the open for periods of time along open fence lines.

As it showed so well the ID features can all be readily seen:
- Long spiky bill
- Rather prominent supercilium
- Short primary projection with obvious pale tips
- Chestnut/Rufous wing panel
- Pale legs

A very entertaining and instructive bird
