2013:

OCTOBER: One was seen briefly on Northwick Warth at 13:30 on the 29th. It was described by the observer as... 'greyish/ golden upperparts, giving a squeaky 'kluee-kluee-kluee' call (different from Golden Plover) and showing smoky grey under wings'... NOVEMBER: It was seen and heard again on Northwick Warth and in flight as it was lost to view heading north-west towards Aust Warth on the 2nd. It was also heard only in the New Passage/ Northwick Warth area on the 4th.

JANUARY: One was both seen and heard in flight south over New Passage around 08:00 on the 1st.(In flight, an obvious Lesser Golden Plover, the call precluded Pacific Golden Plover - Pluvialis fulva. (pers. com.) This is the first documented reference to this species in S. Gloucestershire.
