Going by the habitat alone, my money is on scirpaceus. I`ve been shown palustris just once, and it was singing in denser vegetation, quite far from water, for a reed warbler ,that is.

Primary projection is too short for palustris, and that species has complete pale edges to primaries also. The bird is also too brown - palustris is much paler brown with grey tones, never any orange or rufous tinges.

Habitat can be irrelevant, but if this bird was singing then habitat helps - and the song of Scirpaeus is repetitive and quite boring, whereas that of palustris contains much mimicry.
