Red-flanked bluetail, Wiltshire / Gloucestershire border

Myself, Dave and Ray headed down to Wiltshire today to see the spectacular Red-flanked bluetail which has been present for about five days. We had very good views in pretty decent weather. Here's a photo, more on my blog....


  1. What a gorgeous bird and a cracking photo Colin. Looks like the weather was nicer down there as well.

  2. Very nice Guys, though how come Birdguides says its in Glostershire? A bit of a patch boundary dispute!?!

  3. It's right on the boundary. I think it spends most of its time in Wiltshire, but if it goes onto the other side of the brook it moves in the Gloucestershire. Shirehill Farm is in Gloucestershire.
