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.

24th Apr 2015

My early morning visit didn't quite go as I had imagined it today and the birds definitely didn't have the same plan as me anyway! 

A single Common Tern was present resting on a bouy, but was continuously harassed by the Black-headed Gulls until it eventually flew off high to the north east. There were four Whitethroats, with two in the bramble scrub at the north east end of the reservoir behaving like a pair.

A Yellow Wagtail flew over north and as I was leaving a handful of Sand Martins dropped in. A lone Little Ringed plover was along the western bank and a Greenfinch entertained for a minute, song-flighting near the water treatment works.
