Wheatear and other Sightings
A Wheatear on the shore at Fretherne this evening was a Gloucestershire year tick, as was a Nightingale at the sailing lake later, where threre was also a Common Sandpiper, two Sedge Warblers, a Whitethroat, a Goldcrest two Sand Martins and four Swallows.
A Grasshopper Warbler reeling in the evening at the WWT 100-acre on 22nd was nice to hear, there may have been two birds.
The best bird in the week though was the OSPREY at Witcombe reservoir in the evening on Monday 19th, which is always a nice bird to see in the county. I must congtratulate Graham for his suberp photos of it fishing, which are on the Gloster Birder website.
