Steve Holliday was out today and, whilst getting soaked in the rain, recorded five Goosanders (2 drakes), eleven Great Crested Grebes, two Lesser Black-backed Gulls, a Herring Gull (over south), a Kingfisher and a pair of Bullfinch.
I went out later in the afternoon and picked out a Chiffchaff in with a Long-tailed Tit flock along the river. There were also a few Siskins along the river. Of note there was no gull roost this evening and the few gulls that were around left before dusk.
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.
