Nice photo, Tom.  It looks like a Sedge Warbler.  The eye markings and back plumage are right but the beak does not look long enough.  I cannot enlarge the image but the beak looks a little short and stubby.  You say it is pointed so that would be right for a Sedge Warbler.  It is worth checking your image against a photo of a Sedge Warbler.
