Dartford Warblers

Over the last couple of decades, Dartford Warblers have spread from just a few breeding pairs in southern England and are now now firmly established on many sea cliffs in the west and south of Wales. They suffer in bad winters, but still appear to hang on and recover quickly. They are birds that will benefit from climate change. These photographs were taken in Dorset by Chris in 2008.


  1. Fabulous captures! I have never seen a Dartford Warbler before so it's especially nice to view your excellent photographs. Beautiful bird! Fantastic detail and color in these images.

  2. Those are amazing photos! Great close upviews. I have not seen this warbler before.

  3. Brilliant images, especially as they can be so skulking at times!!
