This morning was reasonably quiet with the Common Sandpiper still present and a small number of hirundines gathering. At Lunch time John and Ian Rowe found another Dunlin for the year, which was still present in the evening. Hobby was a new bird for the year this evening making two passes. It was probably attracted by the hirundines that gave away it's presence with alarm calls whenever it was near. John also had a Herring Gull through today.
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.
