The first Barred Warbler recorded was at Skokholm on 12 September 1956, since when 24 juveniles have been recorded in 16 years between 1960 and 1992, 70% of them on the offshore islands of Skokholm, Skomer and Ramsey. All mainland records have been from the outer coast, at Tenby, Penally and Strumble Head, apart from one at Uzmaston on 5 September 1984. Dates of occurrence extend between 26 August and 21 November, with just over half between 13 and 25 September.
