A quick walk around this morning didn't reveal any end of May surprises. One slightly unusual sighting was another Reed Warbler singing. This one just inside the reservoir gates in the scrub on the left just over the bridge. It may be a new bird in or one relocating from further along the river.
Another nest site was found, this time a Great Tit nest, in the odd location of this post (below) in the cattle field. I can't quite even work out where exactly the nest is but the adults were returning regularly with food entering into the top of the post.
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.
