Sedge on the loose

The young Sedge Warbler was feeding intently directly in front of the main hide at Stithians Res on Sunday. A Sparrowhawk disturbed everything and the Sedge flew for cover into the Purple Loosestrife, just to the left of the main hide. I fired a continuous burst of about twenty shots and this was the best of the bunch. The edges of the image have been cropped and tidied up. I used the 300mm lens and 1.4x Teleconverter. A circular polariser drop-in filter was also unintentionally in the lens at the time.
