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.

02nd Mar 2015: Grimsbury on the Radio

Reg Tipping (B.O.S. chairman and Grimsbury Woodland NR warden) and Mike Pollard (B.O.S. conservation officer) were joined at Grimsbury this morning by Lilley Mitchell from BBC Radio Oxford on the Howard Bentham breakfast show. There were there to discuss the local wildlife and the conservation effort to try and keep Willow Tit in Oxfordshire. You can hear them on the breakfast show here at 21mins, 57mins, 1hr 20mins and 1hr 56mins.

They managed to see Willow Tit, three Goosanders and had the first Curlew of the year fly over. Yesterday (Sunday evening) Mike and I were also at the reservoir checking the gull roost and although there were large numbers of Black-headed Gulls (estimated 1000 birds) there was nothing more exciting amongst them.
