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.

17th Mar 2016

The Oystercatcher was still around up until lunchtime today at least but remains elusive and I didn't see it on my late afternoon walk around.

Yesterday Mark Ribbons, Adrian Bletchley and John were all out and between them they had two drake Shovelers, a Gadwall, 20+ Siskin but no sign of the possible Firecrest.

Today John had the Gadwall still this morning, which was joined by a drake Goosander at lunchtime. This afternoon the Goosander remained and there was a Chiffchaff along the river. I am assuming that was one of the overwintering birds, but we should get our first spring arrivals any day now although they do seem to be a few days late.
