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.

10th Jul 2016: Tigers!

Still quiet in the summer doldrums!

News from Steve on Wednesday included a Common Sandpiper and there was two today, one at the reservoir and one at the Borrow Pit pool.

John found several Scarlet Tigers on Thursday and it is great to finally confirm this species live and present. They are in the area on the left inside the reservoir entrance but before the sailing club, where there is a lot of Comfrey and Nettle plants.

There has been a steady build up of Black-headed gulls over the last couple of weeks and on Friday evening there was 20 including four juveniles. The only other bird news of interest is of the Sparrowhawks. They are growing rapidly and they are even venturing away from the nest and walking out along the branches.
