Article summary

The breeding in 1996 of a pair of Melodious Warblers in an abandoned quarry north of Namur was the first record for the Sambre-Meuse part of Wallonia. This represents one of the present limits of breeding in Belgium. After the considerable spread in 1980s the distribution of the species seems fairly stabilised now, especially because of the relative scarcity of suitable sites at the northern limits of the breeding range.
