Kingdom of the Yellow-browed

phylloscopus Warblers on Linosa

They are part of the magic.

Some headlines.

  • Chiffchaffs are ubiquitous. At a guess up to 1000 on the island every day?
  • Yellow-browed Warblers on Linosa have completely changed the status of the species in Italy.
  • I obtained a call of one of the Yellow-browed which was new to me and others.
  • And we even saw ‘leaf warblers’ that were a real struggle to name.
  • Beautiful backdrop of Tamarisk and Prickly Pear Cactus
  • Warbler food (moths and butterflies) are good too!
  • A Dusky Warbler sang for  whole week on the first spring recce by Hans Larsson. All kinds of rare phyllosc possibilities for the future…

A few photos not yet labelled.  Have a go at the identities. Will label up later. I will give you the first one if you scroll over with cursor!
