John Friendship-Taylor had one Swallow go through north early morning.
Late morning Tim Clark relocated the two Shelduck on the Borrow Pit pool in the Upper Cherwell Valley. There is now gates and a fence across the bund stopping people from going further up the valley than the Borrow Pit pool. He also had two Swallows at the reservoir and a Blackcap singing in the plantation.
In the afternoon there was not a lot happening, but several Chiffchaff were singing along the river. A Sparrowhawk soaring around and a Buzzard displaying. The Coot is still present and the Great Crested Grebes are displaying more frequently.
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.
