Gloucester     The PENDULINE TIT at Plock Court, Longford still today at SO837204. Wellies essential currently. Please keep a reasonable distance from the bird to allow it to feed in the ponds. (Rich Hearn/Les Ditchburn/Nigel Pleass/Terry Grant).

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.
