John and I were out early this morning for a look around. We had three Goosanders (all redheads) early on but I could only see one when I left. Unfortunately there was no sign of the Pochards. There were a lot of birds active in the wood foraging in sunny areas, including around 15 Siskins. The tow Kingfishers were along the river, which by pure luck I managed to get very close to without them spooking. Unfortunately it was just a bit too cluttered to get any clear photographs of them.
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.
