UK: Fluctuating with no long-term trend
 
Status Summary
Garden Warbler abundance has varied in parallel, to some extent, with that of other sub-Saharan migrant warblers (Siriwardena et al. 1998b), probably reflecting the influence of the environment on the wintering grounds. Despite large short-term fluctuations in abundance, the CBC, CES and BBS all suggest long-term stability. Productivity measured by the CES shows a recent decline.
