John was at the reservoir yesterday morning and confirmed a real White Wagtail with some good quality photographs.
Mark visited in the day and had the first Sedge Warbler of the year singing from Bramble scrub along the river and two White Wagtails.
Early evening John, Mike and I met to discuss breeding bird surveys of the Upper Cherwell Valley and there was a great gathering of hirundines at the reservoir. Mostly Swallows but there was also eight House Martins and several Sand Martins. John had a Yellow Wagtail and we also had a White Wagtail and at least four Grey Wagtails.
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.
