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.

Colin visited on Sunday 5th and had a few interesting sightings. Following on from the late Common Sandpiper there was a late Little Ring Plover that flew north. There were two Yellow Wagtails in the cattle field and the Channel Wagtail was still up by the Borrow Pit pool. It was with a female Yellow Wagtail, which it appears to be paired up with. An unusual sighting for the Borrow Pit was a Great Crested Grebe, which neither of us have recorded there before.
John visited today and had two Common Terns but not a lot else.
