I made a couple of visits today, however there was not a lot going on to report. There were Siskins and Chaffinches along the river and a flock of Long-tailed Tits with several Goldcrests. It was noticeable that there is an increase in winter visitors with more Songthrush, Blackbirds and Robins around. I was slightly surprised by the lack of Redwings going over but there were flocks of 13 and 17 over. There was not a lot moving today actually and only one Skylark flew over.
In the afternoon there was not much change, but there was eight Common Gulls on the reservoir.
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.
