Steve and John were at the reservoir today. The highlight was a single redhead Goosander, but it seems they are not visiting so much at the moment. There was also eight Great Created Grebes, nine Cormorants, 110 Canada Geese, seven Common Gulls and Siskins around. Steve had 261 Black-headed Gulls flying through south in small groups, I assume these are from the Boddington Reservoir roost.
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.
