thu 13th July, 2006 Icterine Warbler? Sollas - North Uist - Hebrides A house in Sollas had a number of trees in its garden, and from the trees I could hear something that sounded very much like an icterine warbler.  Mimicking hard, it sounded very much like the icterines I'd heard in Sweden a few weeks earlier.  The alternatives (marsh or melodious, I think) seem less convincing.
