It was much clearer this morning and there was quite a decent passage of birds going over. At least 27 Meadow Pipits and 9 Skylark went over south, but many of the Meadow Pipits were very high so there could have been more. A group of 13 Siskins were together along the river with a few more in the wood. Their calls now seem a permanent part of the day. A few Chiffchaffs were around today, with at least four noted.
A Common Gull was present in the afternoon. The female Sparrowhawk was seen a few times today and spooked everything as it twisted and turned through the trees in the wood. There was not a lot else different this afternoon.
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.
