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.

16th Jun 2016

On Tuesday 14th John was out at lunch time and had two Common Terns and a Little Ringed Plover.

Today I had an opportunity to visit in the morning, the first time I have been in nearly two weeks! As I walked up a Common Tern flew off and two people walking ahead of me disturbed an Oystercatcher, which flew off north east. In the wood there was a bird moving around on the Sparrowhawk nest but I couldn't see if it was an adult or a well developed chick. Chiffchaffs, Whitethroats and Blackcaps are fledging and the Whitethroats along the western path were very approachable. There was also fresh Otter spraint under the railway bridge so they are still active in the area.
