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.

07th Aug 2016: Osprey

Yesterday Steve visited in the afternoon. It was fairly quiet but six Greylag Geese and two Herring Gulls were of note.

Today though there was quite a lot more happening. Steve and Colin were out in the morning and had Common Sandpipers at the Reservoir, along the canal and two at the Borrow Pit pool. At the Borrow Pit they had an Osprey fly over south east at 08:22, which continued over the M40 and out of view so it probably didn't stop. A Spotted Flycatcher was also at the back of the Borrow Pit, perched up on the deer fence briefly.

This evening John had a look at the gathering gulls and managed to pick out a second calendar year Yellow-legged Gull.
