Wood warblers have arrived back in the UK after their migration from Africa. What a beautiful little bird, its song sounds like someone dropping a coin on a table.
Catastrophic decline in numbers, along with other African migrants like nightingales. The problem could be here or there, or both. Whatever the cause - climate change in sub Sahara Africa, population pressure in Africa clearing wintering grounds, change in habitats here etc - what a pity to lose this magnificent songster.
