Westbury-on-Severn      The YELLOW-BROWED WARBLER still at the sewage works today showing well in the spruce. 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.

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.
