neutral Denmark, by destroying many Danish warships in Copenhagen46.

Collett met with this species during the summer months at the Porsanger Fjord
beyond 70° N. latitude; such individuals could therefore migrate from this locality
only in a line direct south, inasmuch as the bird has only once been shot in
Heligoland — in October 1854 — and has never been observed in Germany. To
these Warblers may be added the case of the Northern Nightingale (Sylvia
philomela). The most western nesting stations of this bird are found in south
Sweden and ...

Germans) about 200 feet high, and some lowland, remained. Since 1770, a
current has cut a passage no less than ten fathoms deep through the remaining
portion, and has formed two islands, Heligoland and Sandy Island. — LyeU's
