In western Kazakhstan in former times it was recorded in Mangyshlak, relatevely recent record is only observation of two birds in Urda forest in the end of June, 1990. So this record is first for western part of Kazakhstan in recent 30 years.

Анна Ясько: Садовая камышевка. Проекция ПМ не длинная. Длинный клюв, отсутствие брови, недобрый взгляд - в пользу садовой.
