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.

28th Dec 2015

This afternoon I met John for another good walk and search for birds. Things really are getting desperate for the end of the year!

We didn't see much at all. There was at least seven Siskins along the river that provided some entertainment for a short while. A single redhead Goosander was on the reservoir but that had gone before we left. A single Herring Gull (assuming it was the same one) flew over several times but there was few other large gulls around. The roost was tiny too, possibly only a maximum of 200 Black-headed Gulls and a single Common Gull.

We did find a very fresh Otter spraint under the railway bridge and saw two Roe Deer though, so it was all doom and gloom...
