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.

18th Sep 2015

Mike visited this morning and had a Little Ringed Plover and a Teal at the reservoir. There was also a female Redstart in the hedge through the cattle field and Spotted Flycatcher, Wheatear and a Lesser Whitethroat present.

John visited at lunch time and had the male Redstart in the hedge and the southern end of the cattle field (by the water treatment works), so it appears both of yesterdays birds were still present. He also had a Spotted Flycatcher by the river near the entrance.

Below are two of the pictures John managed to get of the gull from last night. I am seeking further opinions on it's identity and will be back with more news when I get it.
