Arlingham     The RICHARD’S PIPIT still between 11:10am and 12:45pm at least in the small field with the little hawthorn tree by the river’s edge at SO718118 and also in the short grass field W of here. Also a pair of Stonechats, just four Meadow Pipits and a Raven. Park sensibly in Arlingham village. Take the public footpath on the left after Slowwe House (don’t take the Silver Street Project trail). Follow the footpath across the fields until you reach a farmyard (with Alpacas). Go up onto the seawall and follow the Severn Way downriver towards the bird. (MK). Pics by Mike.

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.
