2017:

A 1st winter drake was present from mid-morning until dusk on the shoreline from the Severn Way on Littleton Warth on January 2nd. It was loosely mixing with Eurasian Wigeon around a kilometre north of the parking area at Whale Wharf Lane. This is the first documented reference to this species in S. Gloucestershire.
