Australian Reed-Warbler (Acrocephalus australis) (1) Clamourous Reed Warbler 
heard in reeds along the River Torrens by the William St, Vale Park entrance. 
They were common along this area, but this is first one I have heard in two 
years. Reeds have been replaced with rocks because of river bank errosion.

same bird who comes back each year, or DNA in their young??

trees, had a claw fight and continued on towards the pine trees. My word they 
are fast!!
