John Friendship Taylor and Graham Soden have been out today. There was the first Sand Martin of the year seen over the reservoir and a drake Mandarin Duck on the canal. Both are new for the year list, which is growing rapidly! Two Teal were also on the reservoir which is good as they seem to have been a bit thin on the ground this winter.
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.
