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.

21st Jan 2016: Goldeneye and Redpoll

John was out early again this morning and was rewarded with a drake Goldeneye. There was also two Gadwall and a Redpoll. The Goldeneye and Redpoll were both new for the year. Another visit at lunch time for John and he had good views of two Willow Tits along the river just before the wood. It's good to know they are still around as sightings have been a bit sparse for several weeks. Unfortunately though the Goldeneye did not stay.

Early afternoon there were several Common Gulls loafing on the ice. Scanning through I found a ringed bird but it was too far away to read any details. It's worth keeping an eye out for it though as it could be from somewhere quite interesting.
