Frampton pools     This morning 100+ Swifts, eight Common Terns, a drake Pochard, a drake Gadwall, 144 Mute Swans and a Yellow-legged Gull. (Nick Goatman). On the canal a pair of Shelducks with a brood of seven ducklings, presumably hatched fairly close by.  The female and chicks are stood on a deer carcass. (Gordon Kirk). Pic by Gordon.

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.
