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.

26th May 2016

Well it's fair to say it really it quiet at the moment. The highlight so far this week is that Steve had a Great Crested Grebe again on Tuesday! There was also a family group of Starlings.

This evening John and I did a breeding bird survey of the Upper Cherwell Valley. On our way up past the reservoir there was a family party of Grey Wagtails at the northern end. I assume these are different to the ones that nested by the entrance.

In the valley the Channel Wagtail was still by the Borrow Pit pool. He is possibly paired up with a female Yellow Wagtail by now? There was also a Mistle Thrush up there and one Willow Warbler singing away. We both had family groups of Long-tailed Tits. Otherwise, it was a fairly standard mix of expected species.
