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.

John spent his lunch at Grimsbury today, again searching every corner for another elusive year tick. There were two redhead Goosanders on the reservoir and another ringed Black-headed Gull. This one had a white ring with the alpha/numeric combination of AF939. John has emailed the scheme coordinator for exact details, but it seems this bird was ringed in Germany in the same scheme as another bird we had earlier in the year (AF400).
There was not a lot else to report unfortunately. We will still try everything to attempt to get to 130 species though, we live in hope!
