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.

27th July 2016

Another flurry of activity yesterday with slightly less today. Yesterday morning Mike had a single Common Sandpiper but by mid-day John had eight and they had been joined by a Dunlin. This seems to have coincided with a general wader movement throughout the area.

Yesterday evening John and Mike visited and all the waders were still present and they had a Yellow-legged Gull. It had a deformed beak so it will be easy to see if it remains here or if it gets seen in the wider area.

This morning Steve visited and there was only two Common Sandpipers remaining from yesterdays fall.
