Oriental Reed Warbler

Oriental reed warbler (Acrocephalus orientalis, 东方大苇莺)

Though there have been prinia aplenty, this is the only oriental reed warbler I have seen this year. Last winter he was probably somewhere like Vietnam, Indonesia or the Philippines, late May he was hunting about the lilies at Taozi Lake (桃子湖). And I wonder where he is now.
