Gloucester     A YELLOW-BROWED WARBLER at Alney Island mid-afternoon today. Presumably the same bird that was seen 2 months ago on 12th January, it was quite easy to follow as it moved around the leafless trees near the Lock House at SO823183 and was calling occasionally. (Andy Jayne). A BLACK REDSTART on Pearce Way this morning but not located later. (Mark Hobson).

Frampton pools     At Court Lake this evening four Cattle Egrets, a Great White Egret, 12 Little Egrets, a male Shoveler and two Oystercatchers. (Nick Goatman).

Coombe Hill Meadows     Early morning birds included two Mute Swans, 43 Canada Geese, two Shelducks, 350 Wigeon, 160 Teal, 15 Mallards, five Gadwalls, 53 Shovelers, four Pintails, 12 Tufted Ducks, a Cormorant, two Grey Herons, four Oystercatchers, five Lapwings, 17 Curlews, a Redshank, 40 Fieldfares and 2-3 Reed Buntings. (Mike Smart).

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.
