>>     Both Milburn and Alan are confused.
>>     Clamorous does NOT occur in Australia following recent taxonomic work.
>>     It is "Australian Reed Warbler" in Australia 
>I think Milburn may be alluding to the fact that ther are possibly 2 ssp's
in the Australian Reed Warbler complex (at least)! In Kunnunurra there are
very likely different birds in the same swamp! One is resident the other
comes up from sw WA every year - or somewhere?.
>>and the one that occurs as a
>>     summer vagrant in the top end is the eastern race of "Great Reed
Warbler" -
>>     more usually known as "Oriental Reed Warbler".
>>     However there is one (accepted) NSW record of Oriental Reed Warbler.
>>     Palliser and I saw it at Port Macquarie a few years back.
