A reasonably early start today to see if there was anything new. The only new birds were a pair of Tufted Ducks, loafing amongst the Mallards. I didn't count the Mallards but the number of moulting birds seems to increase everyday. The only other birds of note were three of the Common Terns still present and a Little Ringed Plover I heard but couldn't see, maybe only flying over.
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.
