Dan Watson and John were out this morning and had three Swallows and several Sand Martins at the reservoir and four Tufted Ducks at the Borrow Pit pool. Late morning I had two Peregrines flying high over the reservoir. There was also a good candidate for White Wagtail but I didn't see it well enough to confirm. Colin Wilkinson saw a male Stonechat in the Upper Cherwell Valley and Long-tailed Tits nest building. Late afternoon Colin had a Little Ringed Plover at the reservoir.
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.
