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
is the first documented reference to
this form in S. Gloucestershire.
