2011:

On November 18th a flock of six flew north-east along the A 4174 Ring Road between Warmley and Shortwood at 08:45. Extremely unusual away from the coast but there had been a recent influx into the UK of the continental form 'rubrirostris'. This is the first documented reference to this form in S. Gloucestershire.
