Yellow-browed Warblers in Iceland
Back to main page

The first Yellow-browed Warbler Phylloscopus inornatus in Iceland was found in October 1951 at Akranes (SW-Iceland). These are amazingly regular visitors, considering that no Richard's Pipit Anthus richardi have been found here so far! 126 birds had been recorded up to and including 2011.
