Cotswold Water Park West     Belated news of a WRYNECK on tree near Somerford Keynes church. Seen for several minutes before it flew off westwards. (Terry Bates per Bob Philpott).

WWT Slimbridge/Slimbridge village     The five CATTLE EGRETS roosted on South Lake again. They flew off just after 8am and were relocated in Slimbridge village in the field immediately adjacent to the A38 roundabout, best viewed from the gate near the Legion shop, they were here for an hour but then flew off again. They were back in the field late afternoon until 4:45pm at least then they flew over the canal at 5:37pm and flew back towards WWT presumably to roost. (Slimbridge Sightings/Roy Shilham/Roger Scase/Edward Betteridge).

About The Gloster Birder

My name is Mike King and have lived all my life in Gloucestershire. I am happiest birding around Frampton but I especially love Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. I have birded all over Europe, in the U.S.A. and Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, Belize, Mexico, Dominican Republic, The Gambia, Cape Verde, South Africa and most recently Zimbabwe and Botswana.
