A WRYNECK is present for its second day SES of Gloucester at Witcombe Reservoir favouring the far end of the causeway. Park sensibly by the church then take the footpath through the green gate just before the church; cross two fields before walking to the far end of the causeway and the bird is feeding near the derelict cottage.
This very obliging bird, captured fantastically on film by local birder James Packer, remains for at least its fourth day 1.5 miles NE of Othery in the NW corner of Greylake RSPB reserve (Somerset)
DIRECTIONS: Please use the car park off of the A361 then follow the boardwalk past the pool and take the track towards the hide. Branch off on the tractor trail before turning right and then look back towards the pool (Lee Evans)
