Article summary

In 1995, the Icterine Wabler nested in Melreux and Fronville, north of Marche-en-Famenne. These nesting cases are the first ones since 1985. The since ten years gathered data point out the continuing decline of the species in High Belgium. It disappeared from Ardenne and Lorraine since the fifties-sixties; the remaining populations in Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse (Fagne and Western Condroz), Condroz and Meuse valley do not exceed a few tens of pairs. Only the Entre-Vesdre-et-Meuse (Pays de Herve) still shelters a relatively important population (more than 500 pairs).
