Hello,
You could suppress the space by setting \intextsep to 0pt.

What I sometimes do is just set \intextsep before I call
wrapfigure, like in

...Blah-blah-blah.
\setlength{\intextsep}{0pt}
\begin{wrapfigure}......
\end{wrapfigure}
Wrapped-blah-blah...
\setlength{\intextsep}{3pt}

If you set the \intextsep length before calling wrapfigure,
it will affect both top and bottom; if you set it between
\begin{wrapfigure} and \end{wrapfigure} I imagine it will
only affect the bottom} and after \end{wrapfigure} it will
not affect the considered figure.

Also check whether your image doesn't *contain* a lot of
white space on the top. If that is the case, you could
consider setting \intextsep to a negative value before
calling wrapfigure, then reset it to a reasonable value.

Hope this is of some help
Samuel
