Post-breeding records of the Yellow-browed Warbler in 2020
The Yellow-browed Warbler Phylloscopus inornatus is the most "frequent" of the siberian Phylloscopus. It breeds from the Urals to eastern Siberia and winters in Southeast Asia.
Each year, however, a few dozen or even hundreds of birds are recorded in France, typically between mid-September and the end of November, with a peak during the last ten days of October.
If the majority of the sightings occur along the coast, and especially in Britany, the species can be observed everywhere in France. Thus, during the autumn 2017, it was reported in at least 41 French departments.
