    Local professional guide Ebrima Sidbeh can be contracted by email or via his Twitter account @gambianbirder Well worth a follow given how most guides are not on social media.

    Thought I'd post a couple of record shots of the Bewick's Swans from Salford Priors on Thursday. Apparently they were not Slimbridge birds which makes the recording more interesting.

    http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/tower-hide The Trust could very easily launch a Crowd Funder appeal like the above. Just look how quickly the appeal was raised. Given how popular Upton is with so many people and not just locally, a great campaign could be launched. Just imagine the levels of...

    The pool you have visited is Ipsley Pool. The other side takes you up Ipsley Lane. If you cross the green bridge at Ipsley Pool and head left before you reach the lane that takes you to Pikes Pool. It's been cut back and always seem like a good location but sadly has to much disturbance. Try...

    Dave - There are a few maps here to use as reference. http://www.worcesterbirding.co.uk/worcester_birding_map_index_59.html The old parking bay has gone and a no parking sign up fixed since the new house was built. I'd suggest parking in Grimley village then walk south. You will come across a...
