The Banbury Ornithological Society (B.O.S.) are promoting Grimsbury Reservoir for a big bird year in 2015. The purpose is to try to record as many species as possible in the year - for some more information please see the website here.
Recent years have been good with just over 100 species and 2014 the best so far. However, I'm sure with some more effort from old and new observers that number could be higher!
If you visit there and see some birds, please send the records in to the B.O.S. directly, to me or to one of the other regular visitors. All records will be useful for the area, even if you think they are only common species.
It's not just birds either, it would also be interesting to get records of all flora and fauna in the area. So if you spot anything whilst out, let us know.
Thank you and Happy New Year
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.
