The Wood Warbler breeds in western and central Europe through to central Siberia. It winters in Africa south of the Sahara. See the distribution map at xeno-canto. This sighting in Spain was unusual but the bird, which was singing strongly, was presumably on its migration northwards.

It is noted for its bright yellow supercilium below which is a prominent eye-stripe with a dark rear "hook". The tertials have pale edges and it has a very long primary projection.
