Scientists have discovered a breeding site for the Large-billed Reed-Warbler Acrocephalus orinus, a bird first discovered in 1867 and not seen again until 2006.  The find, in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region of Tajikistan, is the first confirmed breeding site though other researchers found a likely breeding site in Afghanistan last year.
