A very quiet day today on the bird front on what was a stunning, sunny day. Butterflies were out in force, including several Orange Tips on the wing and a Small White, my first of the year along the western edge of the reservoir.
For the first time in quite a while, there appeared to be no Common Sandpipers on site, however popping in on my way home this evening, two Little Ringed Plover were in situ and the Willow Tit was very vocal, showing along the SW edge of the wood. A lonely House Martin also went through.
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.
