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.

25th Jan 2015: Otters!

Sightings from Colin Wilkinson:

Siberian Chiffchaff and Willow Tit still in the woodland. Also a Red Kite over the wood (another new one for the year).

The best sighting however, has to be that of two Otters! They were foraging in the River Cherwell under the fallen willow by the wood, just behind where Colin was stood watching the birds feeding. He managed this record shot of one of them before they disappeared upstream.

There has been signs that Otters are in the area for several years now. It doesn't take much effort to find spraints or footprints along the river bank or the canal. However, actually seeing them is great! But seeing them in the daytime and getting a photo as well is absolutely fantastic!!

Thank you
