2011:

On December 1st at Oldbury Power Station a surveyor reported a Yellow Wagtail! A very late date, the bird was located on call in a flock of Alba Wagtails, and seen to be very grey and white with little or no yellow seen on a brief view. The bird flew and could not be relocated by either of us when the Wagtail flock reappeared in the newly ploughed field immediately south of Lagoon III despite prolonged searching.

 

1993:

On December 16th a winter adult was identified at Aust Sewage Farm. It was present until December 31st 1993 and would remain until at least January 19th 1994. This is the first documented reference to this species in S. Gloucestershire.
