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.

19th Jan 2016: Frozen over
After a hard frost overnight the reservoir was almost completely frozen over. John visited in the morning and a single redhead Goosander remained but was the only notable bird really. I called in very briefly mid-morning and there was a Herring Gull stood on the ice with Black-headed and Common Gulls. I was a little surprised to see eleven Great Crested Grebes still there, all crammed into a tiny area of open water.
