Westbury-on-Severn     The YELLOW-BROWED WARBLER at Westbury Sewage works again this afternoon until 3pm at least at SO716133. There’s practically no parking near the sewage works and it would be best to park in Westbury and take the footpath through the churchyard towards Westbury Strand.  You can see the sewage works from a distance, it’s surrounded by a conifer screen. The bird was spending most of its time in the single conifer by one of the treatment beds. (John Phillips).

Frampton     In the Court Lake roost this evening four CATTLE EGRETS, two Great White Egrets and 18 Little Egrets. (Nick Goatman).

Along River Wye downstream from Lydbrook a Kingfisher, a Cormorant, a redhead Goosander and a male Bullfinch. (Mike Ingleby).

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.
