In the extreme weather there were no out of place wind blown visitors at the reservoir. There are at least four Grey Wagtails around at the moment and the males are looking absolutely dapper. There were sixteen Common Gulls and two Lesser Black-backed Gulls behaving very much like a pair. The coot is still present and a Kingfisher was along the river.
In the shelter in the wood it was surprisingly warm! The Willow Tit is still around but is still on his own, it doesn't seem likely that a female will be joining him any time soon. Getting ready to leave in the car park there was a Blackcap singing in the car park but I couldn't locate it.
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.
