Garden Warbler – 1894

Sylvia hortensis

This is another of the small summer visitors, which is common in Cardiganshire, and seems to avoid our county. We have never seen it, although from where he wrote, on the borders of Cardiganshire, Mr. Dix was able to report of it “about as numerous as, and seen about a week after, the Blackcap.” In the south of the county Mr. Tracy obtained a Garden Warbler in September, 1849, and states that it was the only one he ever saw. It passed into the collection of Lord Cawdor, at Stackpole.
