John Friendship-Taylor made two visits to Grimsbury today. In the morning there was a single Little Ringed Plover, a single Swallow through and four Tufted Ducks (3 drakes). He did make a point to say that they were not the Ring-necked Ducks relocating from the south of the county!
In the evening there were four Little Ringed Plovers. There really seems to be a lot moving through but I have wondered if there may be some settled in the area that keep returning to the reservoir to feed.
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.
