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.

11th Dec 2015
Well, it would be fair to say this has been a quiet week. John has been out a few times but there has been nothing of note at all.
Mark was out at lunch time today and had a drake Goosander but it was gone by early afternoon. There was also at least six Siskins around.

Later in the afternoon I had a quick walk around. There were still Siskins along the river and I heard a Lesser Redpoll but didn't see it. Under the railway bridge there was a fairly fresh Otter spraint. There was a reasonable number of Black-headed Gulls building up to roost too with a few each of Lesser Black-backed and Common Gulls.
