The Willow Warbler is almost unique amongst birds in that it moults all of its feathers twice in a year, on the breeding grounds and again on the wintering grounds; the reason for this is unclear but may have to to do with the length of the migration (from n Europe to s Africa) line Population and Distribution Population Trend: Wider Countryside Report Regional Trends: Scotland More

Willow WarblerThe Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus)is a very common and widespread leaf warbler which breeds throughout northern and temperate Europe and Asia. This warbler is strongly migratory and the majority of the population winters in sub-Saharan Africa. It is one of the first leaf warblers to return in the spring but is later than the Chiffchaff, Phylloscopus collybita. More

The Willow Warbler was considered, 100 years ago, to be the commonest warbler in northern England and over most of Scotland but the Whitethroat was more numerous in England. They were sparse in the west of Ireland and breeding was not proved on Orkney or the Western Isles and not suspected on Shetland. More

Willow Warbler abundance has apparently shown different trends at different UK latitudes. The overall CBC/BBS trend shows a rapid decline during the 1980s and early 1990s, after 20 years of relative stability, and, on the strength of a 31% decline on CBC plots between 1974 and 1999, the species was moved from the green to the amber list. This decline occurred mainly in southern Britain, however, accompanied by a fall in survival rates there (Peach et al. 1995a), with Scottish populations remaining unaffected. More

The Willow Warbler is almost indistinguishable from the Chiffchaff. This tiny warbler has greenish-brown upper parts, buff underparts and with a pale stripe above the eye. The Willow Warbler is more yellow, has a longer supercilium and often (but not always) has paler legs than the Chiffchaff. The bill is pale brown and the legs are dark brown to flesh-coloured. Closer inspection and a keen eye reveal that Willow Warblers also have longer wings and no eye-ring. More

Several Willow Warblers have patches in the wood behind the house. The one in the foreground here struck up one evening in June 2005 as we were recording the Hobby family, who live right next door - to the warbler that is! Willow Warbler 160 kb/s mp3, 1.5 Mb, 1 min 20 s, Telinga with dish 2004 and 2005 were good years for these warblers in the wood. 2006 I'm not sure about, and 2007 doesn't look so good. More

The Willow Warbler and the Chiffchaff are two dainty birds which are almost identical to look at. Both birds are dull, greenish-brown. They have a dark stripe through the eye, and a light stripe above. You can tell these birds apart by their different songs.

David Scholfield sent in a report of a willow warbler in April 2008 which describes the variable nature of the bird: "Saturday, 19th April. North Tolsta. Single WILLOW WARBLER in garden this afternoon, 3.30-6.15. Foraging amongst 'Snow in Summer' plants almost non-stop for nearly 3 hours. Although the plant stretches for about 3 yards, height no more than one foot above the ground, it rarely left it during all this time. More
