2010:

Two were watched in flight south-west past Littleton-upon-Severn at 09:17 on October 17th. They then flew down to the Severn Bridge turned and came back north-east past Littleton-upon-Severn where they were seen in excellent light and at one point less than 100 metres. They continued upriver towards Oldbury Power Station and were noted to be adult birds, 'bulky' with dark and heavily barred bellies and orange bills. This is the first documented reference to this form in S. Gloucestershire.
