Date : 18 October 2008
English synonyms:Chinese Reed-Warbler, Chinese Sedge Warbler, Speckled Reed Warbler, Speckled Reed-Warbler, Speckled Warbler, Streaked Reed-Warbler, Streaked Sedge-Warbler
Bird Family :Acrocephalinae - Tesias, stubtails, warblers, tailorbirds & allies

Remarks :I only had a very short opportunity to take the shot as it was travelling with a group of Zitting Cisticolas Cistiocola juncidis and constantly on the move. The bird was markedly striped on the brown head and upper back. The streaking on the back was stronger than the head, whitish throat, and the underside colour in the photo is true to life. - BIJ
