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.

25th Oct 2015

I have to say, it is rather slow going at the moment. John and I visited late on today and other than the gulls there was very little around. We had a look around the wood, but it was in vain as the birds were so quiet you would be forgiven for thinking there is nothing in there.

There were some gulls gathering and looking through to start with there was only Black-headed Gulls. Then a single Lesser Black-backed Gull. The second large gull to come in was a Yellow-legged, which we assume is the same adult as recent nights. We were slightly amazed that there was only two large gulls and one was a Yellow-legged. It didn't stay long and flew off east and later flew back over and headed off north west. A single Common Gull came in and then a steady trickle of Lesser Black-backs. However, there were not that many tonight.
