The unknown call from Sunday is still unknown. Someone on Twitter suggested a Roe Deer fawn which seems a like a pretty good suggestion but I can't find any reference to what they sound like. Today Colin suggested a Hedgehog as they make funny calls too and I did find some clips of some hoglets making similar squeaky noises. So this is possibly the answer.
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.

20th May 2016: Quiet week
Sadly for the time of year it has been a very quiet week. I have only managed to get out once, mid-afternoon so that wasn't very productive. John has been out most days and the only thing of note he has told me about was a Red Kite over south on Wednesday evening.
