Just a quick visit this evening for a stroll. There was very little of note around up to the reservoir. There were five Great Crested Grebes again. A little gathering of gulls was present and as some left to the north I spotted an adult Herring Gull or Yellow-legged Gull amongst them. Scanning through those that remained I picked out two Yellow-legged Gulls. One of those left with another group to the north. Further scanning through a bit later and there were three Yellow-legged Gulls. So I think there were at least four and possibly five this evening. Whilst watching these I could here the Ring-necked Parakeet of by the canal.
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.
