  1. To celebrate France slowly starting to lift restrictions, I went birding by the coast, and found this nice Wood Warbler, a lifer for me! Posted 5 days ago

  3. Nice photo - did you hear the song (these are very difficult to separate from Chiffchaffs based on sight alone)? Posted 4 days ago
    1. Ah I know, Phylloscopus warblers are always tricky for me, and we've only got a few in Europe, compared to the untold dozens of Asia!
      It didn't sing, but it ticked all the marks for a textbook WW - long wings, green back, lemon eyebrow, throat and chest, contrasting with the nice white belly.
      I posted my favorite photo to JD, but I uploaded more (where you can see more field marks) on iNat.

The Wood Warbler is a common and widespread leaf warbler which breeds throughout northern and temperate Europe, and just into the extreme west of Asia in the southern Ural Mountains. This warbler is strongly migratory and the entire population winters in tropical Africa.
