This is no Farmoor, Otmoor or Port Meadow. This is Grimsbury. It's Grim up north!

There is a running total year list in the link above.

Please send in your bird sightings to the B.O.S. and/or to me directly for inclusion on the blog. If you have some photos you would like to contribute please let me know (contact via the comments box on the right if you do not have my email already). Thank you.

9th Jul 2017

There has been nothing too unusual to report recently but there has been a steady amount of notable birds. John had a Hobby recently and there has been the odd Yellow-legged Gull around on most days. On Wednesday John, Dan and I had a walk around. It was quiet for birds but we did see some butterflies about including several Marbled Whites, Gatekeeper and a few Large Skippers.

Yesterday Mike saw a Common Sandpiper and a Little Ringed Plover at the reservoir. Today Colin saw c.310 Lesser Black-backed Gulls that had a Yellow-legged Gull with them. There was also a Little Grebe on the reservoir which is quite unusual.
