Yellow-browed Warbler


Apologies for the poor images, but as it was a Yellow-browed Warbler I just had to post them. It is not a bird that you see everyday. 

A migratory species from the Palearctic. It winters in the tropical South Asia and South East Asia. Its breeding range is the Ural Moutains, Siberia, Mongolia and North East China.

We are fortunate to get a few turning up from September to November after a 3000 to 3500 Km journey from the Urals. Very small numbers attempt overwintering in UK.

  1. No need to apologise for those images, Roy. A super little bird that I've never seen in the flesh (or should that be "in the feathers"?).

  2. Love the flying one. All great photos. Warblers move a lot. Chasing them around with a camera is hard work....you do it well.

  3. Hoi Roy,
    Geweldige ontmoeting van dit zeldzame vogeltje! Ik heb hem nog nooit kunnen fotograferen!
    Wél de Humes Bladkoning,( misschien nog zeldzamer.) Deze mooie serie zou ik koesteren, geweldig foto's!
    Groetjes,
    Maria

  4. I have never heard of this bird but I think it is very beautiful.
    The name yellow-eyed warbler is indeed very appropriate with those yellow eyebrows :-)
    Beautiful pictures.
