The Dartford Warbler breeds in pockets of suitable habitat in the southern half of England and Wales and is susceptible to population crashes during hard winters. Due to the sizable amount of habitat in the New Forest and the Thames basin heaths, Hampshire has plenty of habitat and a healthy but fluctuating population. Local heathlands like Broxhead Common and Woolmer Forests suit it well. They can be hard to find and are at their easiest to see when they perch up and sing during breeding time.
