Finally I have had the time to finish a preliminary summary of the occurrence of Radde's (Phylloscopus schwarzi) and Dusky Warbler (P. fuscatus) in Europe in Autumn 1999. I warmly thank all EuroBirdnet members whohelped me in gathering the information. All corrections and additions are welcome. Martin Helin, Finland Dusky (P. fuscatus) and Radde's Warbler (P. schwarzi) in Europe Autiumn 1999 This is a preliminary summary of all records of Radde's (Phylloscopus schwarzi) and Dusky Warbler (P. fuscatus) in Europe in Autumn 1999. Both species were recorded in good numbers in: 1999, but the occurrence of Radde's was unprecedented. All records in this article are subject to ratification by each country's respective records committee! RADDE'S WARBLER (Phylloscopus schwarzi) A spectacular occurrence in Europe with about 57 individuals recorded between September 24 and October 31. The first records were from the Fenno-Scandinavia as expected apart from one in Great Britain already in late September. From the October 6th onwards the birds reached also Germany, the Netherlands, Poland (2nd for the country) and more individuals were seen in Great Britain. Apparently new individuals appeared continuously from the east and the peak was reached around mid month when the first birds were also located in France. One bird also reached Malta on October 23 (2nd for the country). Remarks about the species' occurrence in Europe (including a phenology histogram of all records) can be found in Dierscke & McAdams (1990). All records known to me are listed in the table below.
