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.

01st Apr 2016

John visited this morning and had one Swallow, three Sand Martins, a Greylag and five Siskin. I have been meaning to mention that there are some Siskins still in the area but the Redwings seemed to all leave last weekend.

Late morning Ian Rowe had a flock of 48 Common Gulls pass through, which is a very good number for here.

At lunch time John and I had a quick walk around. There was a Willow Warbler singing in the car park and a Little Ringed Plover on the western shore. There were hirundines around and it was unclear how many were coming and going but at one point we had one House Martin and two or three Swallows with 27 Sand Martins.

I should mention that more of Dave's pictures can be seen on his 500px webpage here, including many from Farnborough Park.
