Can you please tell us where and when you saw these two birds? That will help a good deal with any IDs.

The first one is a warbler, but which one? when did you take the photo?

Most probably a Lesser Swamp-Warbler.

He spent ages picking things out of the water.

Hi Gilbert,

I wanted to know when and not where. :wink:

African Reed-Warbler is believed to be a summer breeding migrant to the Cape from higher up in the country. Whether this is correct, I would love to hear comments from the Cape birders.

I still think that this is a Lesser Swamp-Warbler though.

Can someone please help ID this warbler seen Feb '12 from the hide at Karoo NP? Only managed this one quick shot before he disappeared. Thanks.

Hi jacliz

Take a look at Lesser Swamp Warbler. Its the most common all brown Warbler found down that side of the country and the prominent white supercilium is very distinctive
