Could someone please help me identify the bird in the attached photos? I saw it in the reeds adorning the canal down at Everards Meadows on the 30th August.
I think it's a Wren. Note the long, thin beak and barred rufous patterning on the back. It might be a juvenile or perhaps an adult moulting its old feathers.
Looking at other pictures of Wrens, I think you could well be right!
