I was all set to say "Nope, don't get that one over here" but apparently it is a very rare vagrant to the UK and Ireland.

I'll keep an eye out for it

The last report in the UK was a possible Black and White Warbler at Gunton Woods, Suffolk on 3 October 2004, the last accepted record was in 1975 so it is a very rare bird in the UK.

Well; That does it for me, Roy! Quite possibly my all time fantasy bird. (Demi Moore ....? Tough decision!) And you just go out and get a shot like that of one? Lucky man!

Smile Black and White Warbler

Never seen one of those before. It looks like you have some great birdlife in your backyard.

Thanks for sharing it with us.

Although I see the Black and White everyday, it seldom quits moving, hard to get pics of.
Many warblers in the UK? I have no idea how many varieties there are here but, any color one could think of, there will be a warbler that has it.
I took all of these pics in my yard on the same day a couple of weeks ago.


Yellow-rumped Warbler-Myrtle race


White-eyed Vireo


Great-crested Flycatcher

Hi Roy,

Just like the buntings, we've got lots of varities of warblers, virtually all of which are summer visitors from Africa and most of which are various shades of brown (some are greenish-brown or greyish-brown or even grey!). They're attractive birds in their own right, but don't begin to rival yours for colour or beauty!
