2017:

A spring male was both seen and heard at 08:25 on April 6th at New Passage. This is the first documented reference to this species in S. Gloucestershire. It was both seen and heard in flight low over the 'ramp' at New Passage before alighting briefly in the Ash by the entrance to Northwick Warth before flying towards 'The Glen'.

 

On the evening of April 5th a small bright yellow finch landed near entrance to Northwick Warth before flying towards the houses at New Passage which appeared too small for Siskin.
